This student work is made to communicate the collective struggle and loss that is experienced during the isolation of the pandemic. But, despite all that we have lost and all that has changed, the resiliency of our communities remain rooted and evident.
These works are a student’s expression of this evidence.
The Good to See you Project By Andrew Garcia Location: Student Services/ Memorial Plaza
The human face is usually the first image a child sees and recognizes upon entering this world. Throughout this pandemic we have lost the ability to interpret emotions on people’s faces due to social distancing and use of masks. This project aims to bring back the recognizable faces and their expressive emotions to the SBCC campus.
This project is made possible by the support of the SBCC Facilities and SBCC Foundation.
