Current Exhibit


Once Upon A Time

March 1 - April 12

This curated exhibition highlights the talents of illustration and animation artists,  recognizing that visual depiction is linked to the artistry of writing. Artwork portraying renowned and original stories are curated into AVA’s Main Gallery, alongside the narratives that inspired them.

In AVA’s Landis Education Gallery, the animation department of Southern Adventist University showcases their featured presentation, Beep Bop Symphony, while also revealing the creative process involved. Opening on March 1, 2019, this showcase coincides with the national Read Across America Day weekend. The exhibition is sponsored by Elliott Davis, LLC.
