Senior Exhibition 2010: Working in a variety of media, 16 studio art majors explore aesthetic issues raised in their training. Some of these are formal, such as compositional, spatial and color decisions. Other issues involve content, such as the inclusion of social or political commentary. The emphasis of the studio art program is to create a cohesive body of related works through sustained studio practice and critical inquiry. The yearlong process is overseen by art and visual culture faculty, and culminates in this exhibition.
