Art Department Open House, Apr. 19-20

Once again, the U of L Art Department is opening its studios and workshops to the public.

On Apr. 19 and 20, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, everyone is welcome to tour the Art Department.

"We want people to experience the diversity and excellence of work by students in art courses," says Annie Martin, art faculty advisor to the project, which is largely organized by students. "Visitors will be able to experience works in a wide array of media, including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, print, installation, multimedia and video, by undergraduate and Master of Fine Arts students. This is a great opportunity to see work by the next generation of artists."

The Art Student Open House also provides an opportunity for the public to talk with students about their art practices, and take a look at the excellent art facilities on campus. Students, faculty and technical staff can answer any questions and guided tours are available on a drop-in basis by stopping at the welcome table near the stairs on the 8th level of the University Centre for the Arts. School tours can be arranged by contacting Erin Kennett (

In addition to the Open House, everyone is invited to celebrate the achievements of art students with the announcement of the recipients of awards for excellence in Art Studio and Art History/ Museum Studies. This takes place on Apr. 20, 4:30 p.m. in W817.
