Gallery

Kauffman Gallery

Each year art majors are required to submit a minimum of two pieces of art for the annual student art exhibit. These works of art must be properly framed or mounted using appropriate materials for display. The Kauffman Gallery hosts nine or more exhibitions each year exhibiting art works by local, national and internationally known artists.

Senior Art Seminar and Exhibit 

The Senior Art Seminar is a three-credit capstone course which is a two semester sequential program. Students begin Senior Seminar two semesters prior to graduation. Students must plan their schedule accordingly. Students enrolled in the Senior Art Seminar examine contemporary artists, art movements and influences which directly impact their art work. Emphasis will be placed on creating a portfolio of work with a specific focus conceived by the student. These works will be presented in a public exhibition which is juried and held annually. Participation in this exhibition is required for graduation. Résumé preparation and developing a career portfolio will also be included in this course.
