The Art History Club’s inaugural show, curated from submissions from the Chestertown and WAC communities opened on Friday evening. The event allows students, professors and artists to come together to celebrate the union of nature and the man-made world. The show is in Daly 208, the office of professor Benjamin Bellas- making it a truly unique experience on campus.
