In Meyerson Hall Today
What's Going On...

There is a pop-up exhibition being shown in the upper and lower gallery today until 5pm featuring student work from the 'Printmaking and Making Landscape' workshop this semester. The exhibition features different mark-making and printmaking mediums which touch upon notions of landscape, weathering, impressions, etc. It is a lovely show that I would highly suggest checking out!

Aimee Gilmore, one of our Fine Arts student ambassadors was recently featured in AFTAB's article 'Letting Go'.
