SIT Certificate in Applied Arts students present THEN & NOW - an exhibition celebrating Southland Heritage Month. Students have created artworks representing past and the present, to be exhibited in the Transition Gallery on Friday 27th March, 5.30pm - 7.30pm. The students will be dressing up in old-fashioned clothing for the evening and vintage style food and beverages will be available.
The public of Invercargill are warmly invited to attend, and are encouraged to bring their own contribution for the time capsule (documents/images only). Following the exhibition students intend to bury the time capsule containing their artworks and other SIT documents with an accompanying explanation for a future class to unearth in the year 2025.
The students have worked hard in their Professional Practices class to organise this event and develop their own responses to Southland Heritage Month. Students will also bring in vintage objects to put on display in the gallery.
