Students majoring in a variety of areas of studio art will have their work on display during this exhibit, including drawing, painting, jewelry/metals/enameling, sculpture and expanded media, print media and photography, and ceramics.

This school year was the first that all School of Art programs, studios and classrooms were located under one roof at the newly constructed building. The Center for the Visual Arts building has given students and faculty new opportunities to work collaboratively as well as access to new facilities, studios and exhibition spaces.
