What Keeps Me Up At Night

A Make Art Happen Art Exhibition

Term papers, nightmares, monsters, deadlines, faraway loves, footsteps, and fears: these are the things that keep us up at night. We present to you stories of insomnia told through art, expressions of the thoughts that worry us after dark.

What Keeps Me Up At Night represents the many artistic talents of the Haverford community unified by this common experience of sleeplessness. Having gone through a few late nights ourselves, several cans of paint, and many meetings, we are proud to finally present what has kept us up at night.

About Make Art Happen

Make Art Happen is a collaborative art group organized with the intent of expanding the role of the arts at Haverford. We strive to create projects and events that bring students into contact with the arts in a direct and productive manner. As a result, many of our projects are created in collaboration with students who have no prior experience in the arts. Art is not confined to the Fine Arts buildings: it exists everywhere in our community and daily lives. This exhibition is a demonstration of the talents and passions of Haverford students as expressed outside of the classroom.
