A Little on the Creative Side

Nestled in the Cyber CafĂ©, residents of the Hillside Suites were able to showcase their artistic abilities on December 10th at the first Hillside Art Exhibition. More than ten artists participated, displaying over two dozen works. From paintings and drawings, to metal-art/jewelry, ceramics, and photography, there was a wide array of pieces submitted to the show for the residents’ viewing pleasure.

Both the residents and the artists seemed to think very highly of the program and many have requested that we hold another exhibit in the spring. Given the response to this semester’s exhibition, I can definitely say that we’ll be looking to hold another, so keep an eye out for advertisements and calls for submissions for that show! We would love for the show to grow and would greatly appreciate both more pieces and having more artists participate!

Res Life would like to give credit to the following artists for their brilliant pieces of art:
Taylor Baker, Ashley Myers, Jake Steinhoff, Tyler Silagyi, Meagan Mayers, Brooklyn Ford, Chris Perry, Sebastian Luther, Abigail Maguire, Rebecca Masiker, and Jessamine Johnson!
Your pieces were wonderful and both the Res Life Staff and the residents greatly appreciated your submissions!

About the author

Tyler Silagyi

I decided to attend JCC in 2011 for three reasons. Firstly, it was close to home; secondly, I received the USA Scholarship, which gave me two years free tuition; thirdly, I didn't know what I wanted to do career-wise and I knew that JCC would be a great place to figure it out. So over the past two years I worked towards, and earned, my A.S. in liberal arts & sciences: humanities. I was also inducted into Phi Theta Kappa, and became a resident assistant in the Hillside Suites West. I will be continuing my education at JCC for a third year to earn a second associate's degree in business administration with the hopes of a career in human resources. I'm still an RA in the Hillside Suites, and I look forward to once again being able to bring new and memorable experiences to residents. It is my hope that residents will see me not only as a role model, but also as someone they can come to with questions.
