Liberal Arts Learning—4 Things You Can Do From Home
We may be in “lockdown,” but doesn’t mean that learning can’t continue; there are lots of opportunities for Dyson students to attend a virtual lecture, view some art, or build new skills.
Check out the following 4 ways you can expand your horizons from wherever you’re practicing social distancing.
VIEW AN ART EXHIBIT AT PACE, VIRTUALLY
Art uplifts, and, in response to the regulations around COVID19, many cultural institutions around the world are opening their doors to the public virtually. Pace is no exception. We’ve created a digital walk-through of the Digestive Systems art exhibition currently on view in the Art Gallery. It features artists who employ photography as part of their practice to explore food production and consumption. Learn more >>>
In addition, the Annual Art Student Exhibition is a celebration of the amazing work created by Pace University Art Department majors and minors. The 2020 exhibit is presented online as both a virtual exhibit and a digital catalog. Learn More >>>
