Announcement: Opening Reception for Senior Art Exhibition at Hillstrom Museum of Art


As part of Honors Day, the Hillstrom Museum of Art will host an opening reception on Saturday, May 5, from 4 to 6 p.m., for the annual senior art exhibition, titled Senior Exhibition 2012: Unveiled.

Senior Exhibition 2012: Unveiled is on view at the Hillstrom Museum of Art from Honors Day through Commencement, May 27. This exhibition is a culminating event in the curriculum of the ten senior studio art majors and is a required component of their studies. It demonstrates the diversity of styles and approaches taken by the student artists, some of whom intend to continue studying or working in art after graduation. On display are works by Passang Chozom, Samuel Hemmerich, Eydie Kramer, Blong Lor, MaiYia Moua, Cassandra Napoli, Heather Pallas, David Pedersen, Zabrina Stellburg, and Evan Taylor.

Their works were created using a variety of different media such as painting, photography, sculpture, drawing, ceramic, or mixed media. Each artist is represented by artwork and by a personal statement reflecting her or his artistic goals and aesthetic philosophy. Faculty from the Department of Art and Art History served as jurors for the exhibition, selecting the strongest works from a group of submissions by each student. The exhibit was installed with the assistance of the student artists, and a number of the works on view are being offered for sale.

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. The Museum's regular hours are weekdays, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and weekends, 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
