Our 2016 Student Juried Exhibition opened at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 22, 2016.  The show will remain on display until Feb. 20.

The 2016 Student Juried Exhibition opening was a great success! The event was well attended, and the reception included light refreshments, a live musical performance by singer-songwriter Tess Considine and an awards ceremony. 

Our students are the driving force behind these exhibitions. The annual show has a unique formula: peer-jurors are nominated and elected from the visual arts student body. The five jurors then review all submissions and make joint decisions about which works are accepted to the final exhibition, independently from any staff or faculty oversight. This year, our jurors were Angelica Bohanan (freshman), Tsz Kwan Yeung (sophomore), Nicholas Winstead (junior), Sam Thiele (junior), and Katherine Craymer (senior). The Curatorial class was also heavily involved in the layout and installation of the show. The exhibition is truly an accomplishment for each and every student in the department.
