In 2020, a group of Al-Quds Bard College (AQB) faculty inaugurated the first annual AQB Arts Showcase as a space to display and celebrate creative work produced by students across our many divisions and programs. The goal was to draw attention to the role of art and creativity in critically exploring and engaging our world. Now, with 3 years of the arts showcase under our belt, we decided to launch the AQB Arts web archive, which serves as a platform to house and share student creative work beyond the scope of the annual event. The website features student creative work in film/video, audio, creative writing, music, performance, fine arts, photography and more.
