Sheva Fruitman: Evidence - Blue
Charles P. Stevenson, Jr. Library Vitrines more >
Sheva Fruitman is a multi-faceted talent. A former photography major at Bard, she has worked, and exhibited frequently, as an artist, photographer, and designer. For the display cases in the Stevenson Library she has designed an installation that features some examples of her creations, organized around the theme of blue. The exhibition includes photographs, found objects, collages made from an old issue of Vogue magazine, and examples of her jewelry. She likes a recent quotation by Pico Iyer as a statement of her views about art making and living a creative life:
“it’s only by remaining constantly mobile, keeping your voice as fluid and versatile as the world around you, that you can begin to be true to who you really are.” Opening reception on April 26, 4:30–7:00 p.m.

Abby was no stranger to Bard when she applied—both of her parents are alums. At home in California, she had been hearing for years that Bard was a place with opportunities to be a self-starter. Abby has found just that, immersing herself in the economics program and furthering her career with an internship at a macroeconomic research firm in New York City.
