Brucennial 1

For the next few weeks, several members of the VCS community will have works on display in “The Last Brucennial,” an exhibition of over 600 works by women artists presented by Vito Schnabel and The Bruce High Quality Foundation. Participants from VCS include faculty members Kara Rooney and Amy Wilson, alumnae Ranya Asmar, Elektra KB, and Shellyne Rodriguez, and student Seemoriah Cueto.
