The word “swell” can be used as a noun, a verb, or an adjective. As a noun, it can refer to a specific kind of wave that is not caused by wind. It can be a rounded elevation, like a mound. Or something that is protuberant, like a belly. It can be the gradual increase in music or emotion. As a verb, it can be used to describe something getting bigger, like a swelling black eye. And as an adjective, it can be used to mean fantastic, or its sarcastic opposite, horrible.

Come to The Swell Show to explore works in various media that may swell, be swell (or not), or are themselves swells. Featuring artists and special moments, from the Low-Residency MFA cohort.
