This annual exhibition of artworks created by ESU students will be selected by an outside juror, and will showcase the efforts of the students currently working in the Department of Art. This competitive exhibition is held each spring semester to provide art students with the real-world experience of participating in a professionally juried art show. An outside expert nominated by the art faculty will review and select the best student work of the academic year. Scholarships designated by the Department of Art will be awarded at the reception.
