The 2018 Bobcat Art Show, which will be set up in the Kolligian library, is inspired by the 2017 song lyric “a wall is a wall” (Downtown Boys, “A Wall,” Cost of Living (Sub Pop, 2017). We invite participants to respond to, engage, or reflect on this theme. The theme is meant to be read and interpreted broadly: From wallpaper to Wall Street; from the Berlin Wall to the Great Wall of China; from seawalls to prison walls; Facebook walls to internet firewalls; from backed against a wall to “another brick in the wall”; from climbing walls to wallflowers—or The Wallflowers for that matter! Drive us up the wall or go off the wall. Students participating in the show are also invited to compete for the social media based “People’s Choice Awards.” br br The winners will be announced at the Artists Reception on Fri., April 6, and on the Arts UC Merced Presents Facebook page. The show runs through April 30.
