Ladd House Student Exhibition Blurs the Lines of Art


Filling Ladd House on Thursday evening was a multifarious collection of artwork by 47 students — as well as 450 or so students, staff, faculty and parents (who were on campus for Family Weekend), a student pianist playing mournful tunes in a darkened room, lots of balloons to throw darts at and countless used red plastic cups.

The eclectic scene was the opening night of a student art show, “340 Miles North,” which refers to the distance between Bowdoin and New York City. Tom Rosenblatt ’16 and the new student club Bowdoin Art Society dreamed up the exhibition to “promote the vibrancy of the arts at Bowdoin,” Rosenblatt explained. “Family Weekend seemed like the perfect time to advertise this to the greater community.”
