The HARC Collective was founded in spring of 2016 by three students from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. It aims to create events that showcase emerging artists in both the performing and visual arts. Additionally, HARC strives to host a space where art can be conceived, shared and discussed. It's first event, a pop-up art gallery in a refurbished garage, was hosted in April of 2016 under the HARC Collective name, and represented over a dozen artists from across the state and country. As HARC moves forward, it looks to expand beyond its initial proof of concept and utilize larger spaces to create immersive art experiences for viewers. HARC Collective will continue to evolve as we look at new ways of presenting art. HARC Collective is now managed by Divya Agarwal, James Creissen and Daniel Adamkiewicz (Photo coming soon!).
Divya Agarwal is a student at the University of North Carolina, majoring in Business Administration. Her talents include stretching out her laundry for weeks and taping up dryer sheets to her air conditioner. She dreams of a day when she won’t accidentally laugh when placed in a serious situation. In her free time, Divya enjoys romanticizing the past and buying school supplies.
James Creissen is a Business Administration student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. James is both an artist and is interested in how art exists as a form of cultural production. His work has been exhibited with Acadia Frameworks in Bar Harbor, Maine. More information on his work can be found at www.jamescreissen.com.
