The Hillman-Jackson Gallery is a showcase exhibition space for both professional artists and faculty, as well as a curricular hub where students can engage in artist’s talks, class critiques, and installation participation.
Students have the opportunity to submit their work to an Annual Group Show in the gallery, and display class work in the Student Gallery—all in the heart of the Daniel Arts Center.
The students of Simon's Rock have been answering the call of social justice for generations. "We have to take action!!!" was the students' response to the Vietnam War, and more than four decades later it encapsulates how the Simon's Rock community continues to respond to social issues, both at home on campus and worldwide.
Hillman-Jackson Gallery and the Simon's Rock Archive are proud to present Students Stand Up: Activism at Simon's Rock, opening Tuesday, November 13. Students Stand Up: Activism at Simon's Rock explores the history of activism at Simon's Rock, focusing on student protests and the causes that motivated them. The exhibit showcases historical photographs, student publications, and other archival material from past movements on campus. The show is also an interactive space in which you can create an original sign or activist artwork to contribute to our "living wall," write a letter to a government official in a complimentary, pre-addressed envelope, or get information about upcoming events you can join or petitions you can sign. And if you have an issue you would like to raise awareness about, please bring material to include.
The Hillman-Jackson Gallery is free, open to the public, and handicapped accessible.
