Alongside more formal exhibitions in the Dutton Family Gallery and in the VA106 Gallery, the Department of Art & Design has works by students in display cabinets throughout the ground floor of the Visual Arts Building. The students of the MFA in Studio Art, from the Department of Art & Design, regularly show finished artworks, works in progress, and experimental artworks in these display cabinets at four different locations in the VA Building. These grad students work together collaboratively to program the displays throughout the year. Currently, the Department of Art & Design has works on display from painter Amber Bowser, painter Ordando Prieto, ceramicist Andrea Clary, and a group exhibit of many different types of artworks by all fifteen of the MFA Studio Art students. The displays change every quarter, so please come over to the VA building and explore.
