Studio art graduates put on a show

May 14, 2019

Graduating studio art majors in the Department of Art and Art History complete a capstone project consisting of an art thesis exhibition. This year’s five graduating seniors launched installations incorporating a variety of media, including found objects, print media, and sculpture, at art galleries on the River Campus this spring. The works explored themes such as interpersonal relationships, environmentalism, and emotional expression.
