Art Student Open House this week

Once again this spring, the U of L Art Department opens its studios and workshops to welcome the public, Apr. 20-21, daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

"We want people to experience the diversity and excellence of work by students in art courses," says Annie Martin, art faculty advisor to the project. "Featuring work in a wide array of media including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, print, installation, multimedia and video by undergraduate and MFA students, this is a great opportunity to see new work by the next generation of artists."

The Art Student Open House also provides an opportunity for the public to talk with students about their art practices and see the excellent art facilities.

Students, faculty and technical staff will be present to answer questions. People can get guided tours on a drop-in basis by stopping at the welcome table near the stairs on the 8th level of the Centre for the Arts.

On Tuesday, Apr. 20 at 4:30 p.m. in W890 (senior studio area), everyone is invited to celebrate the achievements of art students with the announcement of the recipients of a number of awards for excellence in art studio and art history/ museum studies.
