The work of student artists and art instructors will be on display when Mission College hosts its annual Multimedia Art Show from May 17-23.

A reception on Saturday, May 17 will help kick off the weeklong event. The public is invited to attend the 6 to 10 p.m. event and view firsthand the transformation of the South Atrium into an art and multimedia extravaganza. The Mission College Culinary Arts department will display its own creative skills, serving up edible works of art, free of charge, at the opening reception.

Theme of the 5th annual Multimedia Art Show is "From Behind the Mind," a tribute to the inspiration that drives artists. On display will be paintings, drawings, sculpture, film, audio digital sound, digital art and other works by students in Mission College's art and multimedia programs.

New this year, four artists will display their installation works in the college's Quad area and inside the Instructional Building. These stunning, sculptural, site-specific works will greet passers-by and are designed to respond to the landscape and architecture of the campus, bringing a new awareness and surprise to features often overlooked.

Those who cannot attend the opening reception are invited to visit the college through May 23 (except Sunday) and see the continuing exhibition of artwork from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
