”The principles of true art is not to portray, but to evoke” -Jerry Kosinski

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us have begun to feel increasingly isolated. Many people must be separated from their loved ones during this time, which can be very challenging. These unique circumstances have presented us with an urgent need to find new, innovative, and engaging ways to connect with each other when we cannot do so physically. StFX Art ConneXions is a platform where all Xaverians can connect with each other using the arts. Here at StFX Art ConneXions, we will be collecting submissions of any kind of art from any StFX students, staff, or alumni. We are not only looking for professional submissions, we encourage any interested Xaverians to give it a try! Expertise is not a requirement. Some examples of art you could submit are visual art, music, dance, poetry, and photography, but there are no limits. If you consider it art, we want to showcase it. Feel free to think outside of the box and be creative! Use your art to show how you are dealing with the pandemic and to communicate your thoughts and feelings with other Xaverians who may be feeling isolated. This website will be also be a place where you can view art created by Xaverians all over the world. We are all in this together, and this platform will give us a space to think, feel, and share together as a community. This archive of artistic content created by everyday people during a time of crisis will also serve as a form of documentation of this moment in history.
