15th Annual Student Show



Thursday, February 27th

It is the goal of the Art Department to develop a student's artistic skill and knowledge to a professional level.  We provide leadership for our society and prepare our students for the next step through future employment in an art related field or graduate school.  This exhibition features work from current SVSU Art Department students, majors and minors.  A variety of mediums will be showcased including but not limited to photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, graphic design and more.  Fifty-nine students submitted works, and 120 work were chosen for the show.
