Graduate Student Council to Hold Campus Art Gala

Show will be November 2 in Chandler Dining Hall

The Graduate Student Council (GSC) will host an art gala on campus November 2, featuring dozens of photographs, paintings, digital art, and other works created by members of the Caltech community.

The GSC is holding the gala—part of a series of presentations on campus and around Pasadena—to promote the arts and showcase them as a way for Caltech to reach out to the larger community, says GSC Chair Alistair Hayden.

"While we explore the universe through our science, the arts give us a chance to explore what it means to be human in that universe—and to hone the creativity we use in everything else we do here," he says.

The gala follows recent presentations of Caltech artworks at city venues including the Armory Center for the Arts.

The event will be at Chandler Dining Hall on November 2, from 6–9 p.m.
