Ramapo College Visual Arts Senior Thesis: Here Now

The visual art in the 2020 Senior Thesis exhibition is full of dread, prophesy, nostalgia, dystopia, and a few sprinkles of humor. The diverse group of young artists grew up with fear of school and church shootings, global climate catastrophe, and simmering racial unrest. Here Now is a testament to their determination to use art to better understand themselves and others.

This documentary by Joseph Perez provides a forum for some of the students to reflect on the impact the pandemic had on their experience of this penultimate course. Giselle Ruiz, Brandon Gerber, Tyler Manuele, Rachel Betts, Maria Gonzales, and the other students who appear in this entertaining film provide a glimpse at the creative process, candid statements about the sudden drastic changes in their lives, and an array of visual art showing the results of their art education at Ramapo College of New Jersey.
