Each December, in conjunction with Trinity’s Grand Illumination
and Holiday Music Concert
, the Visual Arts Department hosts a massive Art Show in the Perkinson Arts Center and Powell Library. Nearly a third of the entire student body (over 150 students) create displays of their own works of art for the show. Over 1,000 pieces span all media and genres — from 2-dimensional paintings and drawings and photographs, to 3D sculpture and ceramics, to mixed media and video. All levels of student progress are represented, from beginner level to IB.
The Visual Arts Department hires three independent artists to judge the works in ten categories and according to technical skill, content, display and overall creativity. This year, the “Best in Show” prize was awarded to Jade Alvarez ’20.

Trinity is a place where art is alive and student artists flourish. Student performers can be seen during lunch at Pach’s Place, on stage at Cabaret or in the theatre for a number of performances. The student-run Art Club is also active on campus, bringing guest artists to campus, planning museum visits and infusing art into community service projects.
Over the course of the year, nearly 60% of students are taking courses in the arts. By graduation, all students will participate in at least two semesters of art, music and/or theatre.
