    Apocalyptic Worlds is a collaborative drawing assignment developed in Art 3111 Thematic Drawing. The class began by reading and discussing the opening chapters of Aldus Huxley’s Brave New World, a dystopian novel that explores behavior conditioning and new reproductive technologies that effect sweeping changes in society. In groups of three or four, students were tasked with developing a world that they could then affect with a catastrophic event.

    Exhibitors include: Juana Diaz, Grace Downey, Ros Fiol, Claire Glenn, Jordyn Goldklank, Ryan Haddix, Preston Harris, Kyla Jenkins, Paxton Klotz, Samantha Mark, Nadeline Nave, Olivia Onate, Franklin Ratliff, Chase Register, Lauren Rhodes, Dallas Sigmon, Kylee Skidmore, Brett Taylor and Montana Wilson.
