The 2016 Department of Art, Art History, and Design Undergraduate Exhibition marks an important achievement for our student exhibitors. 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 Ceramics, Drawing, Electronic Art + Intermedia, Graphic Design, Photography, Painting, Printmaking, and Sculpture.
