The exhibition, ‘awesomesauce’, celebrates the emerging talents and fresh perspectives of former DCAD students who are creating artwork for and of the ‘now.’ The term ‘awesomesauce’, a relatively new word meaning ‘extremely good; excellent,’ is a recent addition to the Oxford English Dictionary due to its prominence in popular culture and on social media. Like the usage of this term, the exhibiting artists and designers elevate the status of everyday objects and routines through a contemporary lens. These artists engage in illustration, fiber arts, animation, fashion design, sculpture, and performance in a variety of industries that promote process, product, communication, collaboration, self-expression. Although the work may be varied in scale and materials, the artists are united by their shared transformational experience as students at Delaware College of Art & Design. Awesomesauce gives a snapshot (screenshot) into new processes and practices that drive, shape, and influence our ever-changing visual culture.
