There are myriad opportunities for students in the School of Visual Arts to engage with their art interests outside of class as well as through class activities that interact with the campus and greater art community. Here are some of the activities taking place just this week!
Biannual Print and Ceramics Sale. Twice a year, students in the Works on Paper Guild and the Ceramics Guild sell their work in the Roland Dille Center for the Arts. This spring’s sale took place on Monday and Tuesday, and, as always, was a very popular and successful event.
Mini Madness Juried Exhibition. Students enrolled in Art 498 Exhibition design and carry out a number of exhibitions. Mini Madness consists of artworks by faculty and students, each no larger than 3″ x 3″ x 3.” Students in the class selected 32 works for the display from the large number entered. Opening is tomorrow at 5 pm, outside the Critique Room (CA 172).
Annual Freshman Field Trip to the Twin Cities. Each year, freshman rise bright and early for a full-day trip to Twin Cities museums and galleries. Highlights of last week’s trip included the Hopper exhibition at the Walker Art Museum.
Caricature Drawing. Students in Introduction to Illustration will be setting up in the student union tomorrow and drawing caricatures for members of the campus community. Stop by and get your caricature drawn–free!
This is only a small sample of the ongoing creative energy in the School of Visual Arts. Student groups include Dragons Den Comics, Painting Guild, Works on Paper Guild, Photo Guild, Ceramics Guild, and National Art Education Association MSUM Student Chapter.
