Valparaiso University Art Seniors Display their Work

04/19/2023 – Valparaiso, Indiana – The Brauer Museum of Art at Valparaiso University will host the 2023 Senior Thesis Exhibit until Saturday, May 13, 2023. This will be the first exhibit from the communication and visual arts department since the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Each project represents a year-long investigation into a topic and medium of the artist’s choice,” said Sarah Janzi, MFA, associate professor at Valparaiso University. “This year’s exhibit features student artists displaying a wide range of projects: colorful abstract poetry paintings, a series of killer robot paintings, radiant and chaotic collages of a self-described Nuerodivergent mind , and a beginner’s cookbook of Asian comfort food.”

The event will kick off on Wednesday, April 19 with an opening reception beginning at 7 p.m. at the Brauer Museum. Visitors will be able to preview the artwork and meet the exhibiting artists Anna Beres, Eric Hernandez, Kayla Smith and Nathan Vargas. The reception is free and open to the public.
