I recently spoke with Susan Fenley, executive director of Staten Island’s SunDog Theatre, at The College of Staten Island’s Springer Hall.

To Transcend is to go “beyond limits of ordinary experience”, go beyond the world of materialization and tangibility. This was the theme of this year’s student art exhibition at the College of Staten Island. As I walked into the show, I was approached by a professor and a student discussing an art exhibit on the wall. The professor looked at me and kindly whispered, “You can walk through, but only five minutes, I am giving a final”.
