Nine graduating Art students at McDaniel College are highlighted in virtual end-of-the-year senior capstone exhibitions.
Titled “Perspective, Perceptions, and the Self: Private Lives in a Public World” and “Something Bigger,” they include a range of media from two- and three-dimensional approaches to digital and new media. Both online exhibitions are live Friday, May 8–Friday, May 22.
Five senior art students showcase their work in “Perspective, Perceptions, and the Self: Private Lives in a Public World,” which examines what it means to develop as an individual in this ever-changing world, while “Something Bigger” explores the work of four McDaniel students who seek to understand concepts that are larger than just themselves, “and how we as individuals fit into the equation.”
View the works in “Perspective, Perceptions, and the Self: Private Lives in a Public World”
- Carolyn Cox of Taneytown, Md., says “My work is an exploitation of this dissonance between the public and the private self, the creation of coping mechanisms, and my own journey with confronting reality. By creating patterns and recalling memories, I highlight my journey with the coping, feelings, and battles that are contained in the limits of appearing perfect.”
- Justin Frock of Westminster, Md., has a goal to “make the viewers think about what they are looking at and perceive the work through their own eyes.”
- Molly Gough of Westminster, Md., said, “My main purpose is to bring awareness to the major effects cigarette butts, and littering in general have on our environment. From polluting our air to killing animals, all kinds of littering is extremely harmful. My work is going to be disturbing, yet eye opening. Through my use of many different mediums, I hope to show the many deadly impacts littering has on our environment.”
- Monica Dewberry of Olney, Md., said she creates “art that keeps me stuck in the 1990s.”
- According to Zuri Haley-Robbins of Decatur, Ga., “’The Shape of Perception’ is my attempt to give these experiences form; the extremes of myself, someone else, and how I think others see me. Using both traditional and digital media, I wanted to experiment and discover the possibilities.”

- Lauren Beckjord of Laurel, Md., points out that her work “focuses largely on establishing the relationship by highlighting the formal and functional similarities between humans and fungi. Because this topic relies on scientific research and uncommon knowledge, I make a point in my work to be educational, engaging and accessible.”
- Sheila Evans of Falls Church, Va., notes, “Through the use of surreal and fantastical imagery, I hope to show the emotions and feelings created by these online spaces and relationships.”
- Daniela Yacobucci Lapaitis of Columbia, Md., indicates that her “work reflects elements of my multi-cultural background as well as a multiplicity of my other interests and passions such as computer science.”
- Mollie Riner of Hanover, Pa., said, “I aim to be creative all the time, and am always looking for opportunities to go beyond my comfort zone. I push boundaries by going to places that the average artist might not travel to find inspiration.
