These past few weeks, there has been a lot of hatred and anger going around our campus. But it’s important to remember that Texas State is a school known for its diverse community of artists, musicians, and students who have the potential to change the world. With all of this hate going around, it can be easy to get caught up in the negativity and forget about all of the beautiful things about our school.

I personally choose to focus on those beautiful things. If you are having a difficult seeing these for yourself, I would recommend visiting the current art exhibit going on right now at the Joann Cole Mitte building.

Running from November 27 through December 15, you can see the BFA Thesis Exhibition, which displays art made by BFA students in their thesis semester. These artworks are entirely conceived and executed by thesis students and show the diverse and beautiful work Bobcats can make.

I attended this exhibit this week and I can honestly say that looking at the works that these students have been working on this semester is very therapeutic to the mind. One of my favorite pieces was a collection of paintings done by Gerardo Gomez Escamilla, or more specifically, “Don’t Disrespect the House”. The use of colors and lighting in these paintings caught my eye as soon as I entered the room.

If you’re looking to relieve some stress before finals, I would definitely recommend taking 20 minutes out of your day to go visit this exhibit.
