Thanks to Dr. Gonzalez and the Chrysalis team for creating the Creatives in the Garden event this past Thursday.
The event hosting various programs and groups of EPCC showing their art in different ways.
This is the first year that Dr. Gonzalez and the Chrysalis team joined together to organize this event for the students.
It was a success since there were lots of people who attended to see what the event was about.
They were expecting about 400 people in the event, and the even reached their expectations. Everyone walking around looking at the different arts, eating the free food the event had offer and enjoying the music the EPCC radio was hosting.
The Chrysalis production had featured the Student Art Exhibit, the Mass Comm. Video Productions, Aquaponics Demonstrations, STEMGROW, PASOS Program, Hip Hop Club, EPCX Club, EPCC Dance, EPCC Film Club, Papagayo, Poetry Readings, and Bridges to the Baccalaureate Research Program.
The Student Art Exhibit also had various illustrations inside building A and some on the outside tables on the event.
Another table had a comic made by a student. The Papagayo and PASOS program also had poems to share to the students.
Live performance of Mouthy Downtown band and the Hip Hop Club had a student performed his poetry in a way of rap.
The Biology Team had their table with microscopes to show people their science.
The Mass Media Communication, Video Production and EPCC Film Club showed their videos and productions on the big screens that were outside. The EPCC Dance Team shared an interesting poem with a dancing performance as the background this poem was about domestic violence.
The dancer was making her moves following the words that the performer was reading. The message was when sharing the awareness against domestic violence it becomes important to help people going through this situation.
Great performances from each group showed the talent and dedication each student has for the art. Live performances of students reading their poetry. Love and sad poems were the most shared by the students which all had a different message to send. Several students read their stories in Spanish.
Dr. Gonzalez shared a short poem that he had written. Sarra Valenzuela who is part of the Chrysalis team as well shared a short poem. The main point of this event was to invite people to share their art. Since it did bring lots of people it is hope for them to participate into next year’s Chrysalis book.
The event was a success and hopefully there will be an event like this next year so that more students can share their art.
EPCC hopes to see more of these kind of events in the future. Sharing different forms of art can inspire students to join different clubs.
