School of Art Faculty Exhibition

During this special year of celebrating the 75th anniversary of the College of Fine Arts, the biennial School of Art Faculty Exhibition features works by School of Art teaching, Emeriti and retired faculty. The presented artwork mediums range from painting, sculpture, ceramics, prints, and photography to graphic design, drawing, and new media like video and installation art.

There are only two weeks left to visit the exhibition before it closes.  The tour of the Kennedy Museum of Art is a relaxing way to spend a spring afternoon.
