2020 Undergraduate Exhibition

September 4 – October 16, 2020

The 2020 Department of Art, Art History, and Design Undergraduate Exhibition marks an important achievement for our student exhibitors. This show was originally planned for April of 2020. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, this exhibition was delayed but we are delighted to reopen SCENE Metrospace with this annual exhibition. These students continue a long history preceded by thousands of alumni who have shown in past Undergraduate Exhibitions at MSU. Centered in a learning environment that values the development of personal vision, critical inquiry, and philosophical reflection, undergraduate students across all disciplines make intellectual and artistic discoveries. This exhibition features a sampling of coursework from Apparel & Textile Design, Ceramics, Comics, Drawing, Electronic Art & Intermedia, Graphic Design, Photography, Painting, Printmaking, and Sculpture.
