VU Art Student Exhibition

ART STUDENTS PRESENT WORK AT MUSEUM

VALPARAISO, Ind. – The annual Valparaiso University Student Art Exhibition will open April 21 at Brauer Museum of Art and feature works created by Valpo art students during the current academic year.

This year’s Valpo Student Art Exhibition includes more than 70 works selected by the University’s art faculty. The works will be on display through May 9.

An opening reception and awards ceremony for the exhibition will take place at 7 p.m. April 21 in Brauer Museum (http://www.valpo.edu/artmuseum). The reception is free and open to the public.

Artwork in the exhibition was created by students taking studio classes in painting, photography, drawing, ceramics, graphic design, jewelry and sculpture.  University studio instructors were allowed to select up to 12 student works from their classes during this academic year to be included in the exhibition.

“This is an important exhibit for Brauer Museum each year,” said Gregg Hertzlieb, director of the museum. “We are always impressed by the results of the students’ creativity and hard work, and we enjoy giving the public an opportunity to see the work of this new generation of artists.”

Several prizes will be awarded to students during the April 21 opening reception, and attendees will vote for a $50 Viewers’ Choice Award.
