An exhibition of professional artists curated by students of Juan Morel Campos
The students of Juan Morel Campos High School are looking for artists to submit work for the upcoming exhibition, (Social) STATUS UPDATE. Artwork should be visual and can take the form of objects, audio or video.

We are a high school art class in Williamsburg, Brooklyn that is focusing on portfolio development. We believe art has the power to change a mindset or point of view, inspire others, convey personal stories, and connect people. We explore art in many different media, but want to expand to more than just making art. We seek to think of art conceptually and look at the active part of art. We view curating as our chance to communicate with our community and neighborhood and get a feel of what it is like to be on the curating side of the profession.
