The END etc.

The Seniors of Pittsburg State University’s Department of Art invite you to join them in viewing their public exhibition The END etc. The exhibit features the student’s selected final projects in their respective emphases and will be on view in Porter Hall’s Harry Krug Gallery April 24 through May 5, 2017. 

Our graduating seniors in 2017 are Luis Calderon (Illustration & Visual Storytelling),  Susan Covert (Illustration & Visual Storytelling), Brianna Gillis (2D Fine Art), Lauryn Hastert (2D Fine Art), Cameron Parks (Illustration & Visual Storytelling), Mattie Parrigon (Illustration & Visual Storytelling), Ashley Tyson (Illustration & Visual Storytelling), and Brittney Walton (Illustration & Visual Storytelling).

The students will hold lectures discussing their works on April 28 in two sessions the first being from 5:00-6:00pm and the second from 7:00-8:00pm in Russ Hall, Room 409. In between these lectures, there will be a reception from 6:00-7:00pm in Porter Hall. There is no obligation to stay for the duration of the evening, please feel free to attend the presentations of your choice. 

When choosing a title, the senior class first selected, simply, The End because their time growing and learning together in Porter Hall was coming to a close. After some thought, they added etc. to signify that although a huge part of their lives was ending, another exciting part was just about to begin.

We are very proud of our seniors and welcome you to join us in celebrating their achievements. Hope to see you there!

Upcoming: High School Art Day, Spring 2017

It is time once again for the Pittsburg State University Department of Art's High School Art Day! On Tuesday, April 25th we will be hosting groups of students from all over the region. They will participate in workshops led by our students, to get some hands on experience with a new art technique, and to get a feel for the kind work we do here at the university. As with all of our High School Art Day events, we will also be holding an art competition for the students in attendance, judged by alumni of the program. This year's judges are Michael DeRosa and Janelle Null.

We're looking forward to welcoming all of the students next week! Below are some pictures from last semester's High School Art Day workshops. Our undergraduate workshop leaders had a great time, and so did their students!
