Student Art Galleries
BA, BFA, and MFA students are required to exhibit their work in partial fulfillment of their degree requirements, resulting in some 150+ student exhibitions annually in the six student galleries, two performance/installation areas, and additional hallway spaces. This unique and extremely popular program of weekly exhibitions and opening receptions is an essential component of the students’ academic experience.
Artist receptions are generally held every Tuesday evening, 6 – 8pm, following the Tuesday Night Lecture Series, 5-6pm in Art #133. All exhibitions are FREE and open to the public!

Laura Guadarrama De Chidester: Foundations
Have you ever experienced an event or events that shakes your foundations? That jolts your system of beliefs, causing great uncertainty?
We encounter ourselves at our most vulnerable state when our foundations are exposed, compromised. After the dust has settled revealing our underpinnings, can we see what is left behind? What has left us? Have we become stronger?
When we exist in the newly created chasms, we become free to move, exit, shift, and grow. There is beauty in the destruction that allows us to appreciate what remains, marvel in the connections, the mess, and the progression.
Foundations is an invitation to explore our states of vulnerability, shock and aftershock, the stillness that follows, and the resiliency that we all carry within.
