Department of Art and Design Senior Exhibition

November 6 – December 4

Gallery 249, College Park Center
Reception: Thursday, November 6, 5-7 p.m.

Featuring work created by seniors graduating from the Department of Art and Design, this exhibit is an annual favorite. With a mission to “educate for transformation,” the department offers exceptional instruction in the areas of art education, art history, fine art studio, photography, and graphic design. Student exhibitions reflect high standards of creativity, craft and conceptual understanding—and this one provides a great send-off for departing seniors.
