Nyack Artists Featured in East Village Multimedia Showcase

A group of Nyack College alumni and current students gave new meaning to the phrase “if these walls could talk.” These Nyack artists spoke through their paintings, illustrations and photography on display at the intimate 400-square foot East Village Storefront in Manhattan.

Katie O’Sullivan, a Nyack College Honors Program alumna and 2016 summa cum laude English major, invited Nyack College students to participate in the event showcasing multimedia forms of art.

Katie is currently pursuing graduate studies in International Relations at New York University. She explains, “As part of NYU's Peer-to-Peer (P2P) 2017 campaign, "Common Place," our goal is to inspire ongoing conversations about community, identity, and diversity. The art show is part of a trio of events that aim to encourage people to share stories, embrace different perspectives, and express themselves.” 

The work of alumni—artist Qian Ye (’12 BS, Communications; ’15 MSOL) and photographer, Tyrone Taylor (’15, Youth & Family Studies major)—was displayed. Two current Nyack students, Djulie Scaff (’18, music major, whose illustrations were on display, was joined by her cousin Christine Freitas (’18, Bible major). The duo provided music during the exhibition.
