The class of 2016 presents their ART!

Senior Art Exhibition is the culmination of the students’ undergraduate studies and showcases the artists they have grown to become as well as their potential path in the arts. The under-graduate group exhibition presents work in the concentrated studies of art education, art therapy, and studio arts concentrations in graphic design, illustration, painting, and photography. A closure experience for graduating art majors, participation in the group exhibition at Marywood University is a requirement of the Department of Visual Arts. Students will be receiving a bachelor of fine arts (BFA) or a bachelor of arts (BA) degree, depending on their area of study.
