    DREAMS is an online exhibition created by students in the Art Club and NAHS at Southeast Raleigh High School. Students proposed and voted on topics they would like to work with and put out the call to other students, and the theme of the 2021 exhibition, Dreams, emerged. Students’ interpretations of the theme deal with wishes, goals, nightmares, the subconscious, and surrealism among others.
