Paul Morris Exhibition comes to a close..

The Paul Morris ceramics exhibition, "Sustaining Persistence" concluded today. The exhibition ran from November 8 - December 8th. PSU students and community members had a wonderful opportunity to meet and hear from the artist when the exhibition opened in early November. For those folks unable to make it out to the exhibition we have posted some amazing pictures of the work.

Better Homes and Bathrooms Exhibition Opening this Thursdsay!

A collaboration between Nicole Meyer-Foresman’s Advanced Art Class from Girard High School and PSU’s S. Portico Bowman’s DesignII class will be on view in Porter Hall Thursday December 8 from 5:00 – 8:00 pm during the Art Department Holiday party.  

The GHS students have been working since October building a bathroom out of giant pieces of foam inspired by the imagination of Dr. Seuss, whereas the PSU students have been building kitchen appliances out of cardboard after the work of British sculptor Chris Gilmour.  PSU students have been in communication with Mr. Gilmour who will at the end of the semester decide if “he likes their work.”  If he does a portion of the final project points that students can be earned will increase.
