This juried exhibition will focus on necklaces, rings, earrings, bracelets, and brooches.
Jewelry is a mobile art form that changes with culture, time, and resources. It is something that can perform differently in various spaces and evoke interesting conversations with friendly strangers. What kind of ways can you interpret Pop Art in jewelry? How do you incorporate recognizable imagery, content from popular culture, bold colors, and/or things that are mass produced into wearable pieces of art? Have fun exploring this theme!
