Manifest Gallery: Tapped
13th Annual Exhibit of Paired Works by Artists and their Current or Former Instructors*

Deadline: September 2, 2022

We realize that the learning they inspired (or insisted upon) is a chain-reaction process that develops across our lifetime. All of us who have been students carry forward our teachers' legacy in one form or another. And those who are, or have been teachers, bear witness to the potency of studenthood.
