All Student Exhibiton SP18 Darla AllenThis special exhibition is presented to the public at the end of every semester, and represents the culminating experience for all students enrolled a in a visual arts class. For many students, the opportunity to study an arts discipline is a rare delight, often to be savored in the last year of their studies. For some, it is a class for three general education Fine Arts credits, required for the completion of a degree in the liberal arts. For students who choose to major or minor in the arts, these courses represent the beginning of a lifelong exploration of personal expression and ideas through art.

For students enrolled in Gallery Practicum ART 290/390 this exhibition is a signature assignment. Gallery Practicum and Art scholarship students are responsible for all aspects of the exhibition: from designing forms, to preparing the gallery and installing the artworks. Not only do these students curate the display, because they are also enrolled in studio art classes, their own artwork graces the walls and pedestals in the gallery.

Please extend your congratulations to these students for their herculean efforts in assembling this exhibition for all to enjoy:
