An art exhibition of their own

May 11, 2018

Making their mark: This is one in a series of profiles celebrating members of Rochester’s graduating class of 2018.

Studio arts majors in the Department of Art and Art History cap off their senior year with an art thesis exhibition, and since last month this work has been on view in galleries on River Campus and in the Rochester area. The shows are a culmination of each student’s hard work and dedication as artists. The ten students graduating this year have covered various topics in their shows, including the intersection of the food and pharmaceutical industries, social interaction and anxiety, and the role of the professional artist in today’s society. Their installations work with a wide variety of mediums including acrylic on canvas, video, and audio materials.
