“Despite the challenges of working under pandemic restrictions, this senior class has created an impressive collective body of work for their senior exhibition,” says Scott Anderson, professor of art and senior project adviser. “The works display a range of interests, from stewardship of the environment to personal narratives, and some comment directly on the moment we’re living in. These student visions have as yet been untold, and the art department faculty are proud and excited to celebrate them with this exhibition showcasing their efforts.”
