Remember a Place Not Here: the 2023 Thesis and Senior Exhibition


Join the Art Department for the 2023 Thesis and Senior Exhibition, Remember a Place Not Here!

This year's show features work in media like oil painting, traditional printmaking practices, and weaving alongside digital film, virtual reality, and 3D rendering, made by over 40 students in more than 15 different majors. Making and meaning are at the center of what we do in the Art Department, and students majoring in the arts engage with the field in a deeply meaningful way. But this year's incredibly diverse exhibition is evidence of the importance of the arts all across campus-- from the Studio Art majors who've taken a class in almost every art discipline to the students majoring in something like Neuroscience or Economics, who still dedicate long hours to advanced studio art classes and find themselves making beautiful, nuanced, conceptually complex artworks.

Artwork is on display in the Jewett Art Gallery, Jewett Hallway Galleries, Jewett Sculpture Court, JAC 255, PNW 2nd floor lobby, PNW 203, PNW 205, and the PNW 1st floor De Hoyos Lobby.

The show is on view May 5 through the morning of May 20. This year's show is open to the public 10 am - 5 pm, 7 days a week, May 5 - May 18.

Please note that May 19 and 20 are graduation ceremonies on campus, so the show will be viewable to members of the campus community and invited guests attending graduation only on those dates.

The opening reception is Friday May 5, 4:30 - 5:30 pm.

Contact Gallery Director Samara Pearlstein with any questions about the show, or for directions from visitor parking to the art buildings.
