2015 Studio Art Major's ExhibitionEach year, senior art majors exhibit their work in the Beard and Weil Galleries. This year the creations of 16 students were featured in “Working Title.” The name of the show, which students came up with, is “their way of conveying a sense of work in progress, that their education will always continue and their work will change,” noted advisor Kelly Goff, assistant professor of art and art history.
