NURTUREart was pleased to present What It Was, curated by Project Curate with Adam Parker Smith, and featuring artists Avantika Bawa, Brent Birnbaum, Wyatt Burns, Stephanie Dinkins, Patrick Mohundro, and Scott Rogers.
What It Was asked us to confront our pasts and explore the potential of alternate and plural futures. In predicting what role art will have in our own lives and the lives of others, we wondered: where will the future be?

Part of NURTUREart’s Education Program, Project Curate provides a class of students from Juan Morel Campos High School an opportunity to experience contemporary curatorial practices by working closely with a professional curator for the entire school year, culminating with an exhibition at NURTUREart Gallery. This year their mentor was artist and curator Adam Parker Smith.
NURTUREart’s Education Program is dedicated to nurturing and enriching the next generation with its unique arts programs that connect practicing professional artists and curators with students and teachers.
