The end of the semester is near, and lots of art students are finding themselves burdened by projects they cannot keep. Luckily, students have more and more options to rid themselves of excess art while showing it off around campus.
Friday marked the opening of “Art Matters,” a new exhibition in the advising halls of the Lightsey Center. Several of the pieces included had been created as part of a special project in partnership with the science department. “Hagfish Scavenging Whale Head” by Grace Musser, for example, was inspired by the biology research of Dr. Andrew Clark.
Although “Art Matters” is no longer taking submissions, the Career Center has just sent out a call for contributions to their ongoing exhibit, “Hire Art.”
“It’s a mini gallery right now, we don’t have too many pieces,” said internship coordinator Katie Smith, who is organizing the exhibit. “We’d love to fill our walls eventually.”
Students are free to donate their art to the career center, or just lend it to them for any amount of time. Art in the Career Center is often seen by parents, students and possible employers. Not only does exhibition the exhibition reflect well on the school and the artists, but students can also write on their resume that their work is part of a gallery.
The “Art Matters” exhibit can be seen in the advising halls on the second floor of the Lightsey Center. To submit work to “Hire Art,” contact Katie Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org
