2016 Baccalaureate Exhibition
The Visual Arts Department and Memorial Union Gallery at North Dakota State University are pleased to present the artworks of the Baccalaureate Graduating class of Spring 2016. The exhibition will be on display in the Memorial Union Gallery from April 12-April 29. The Gallery will host an opening reception on Tuesday, April 12th from 5-7PM, with an artist talk taking place at 5:30pm. This event is free to the public and all are invited to attend.
The Baccalaureate program at the Visual Arts Department is comprised of a dynamic and multi-faceted curriculum that encourages individual exploration of art practice led by exceptional faculty. Every year, The Visual Arts Department at NDSU graduates many gifted and diverse undergraduate students that go on to successful careers in a variety of professions. The 2016 Baccalaureate exhibition is a cohesive record of the ideas and images that each student has investigated throughout the last semester of their academic pursuits.
“The students that will be exhibiting their body of artworks in this exhibition have been developing their craft and concept for the last four years. Their artwork has become more sophisticated and will now be added to the contemporary discussion about place, value, beauty and individuality. The students have developed thoughtful and often very personal approaches to their body of work,” said Anthony Faris, Gallery Coordinator for the Memorial Union Gallery, “Through photography, sculpture, printmaking, installation and painting, we can view the dedication each students has to their craft, expression and artistic practice.”
The Fall 2016 Baccalaureate Exhibition features the artwork of the following students: Hillary Ehlen, Megan Johnson, Candace Skauge, Kiley Smith and Shelby Steidl.
Visual Art Professors include Peter Atwood, Kimble Bromley, Kris Groberg, Kent Kapplinger, Meghan Kirkwood, Su Legatt, Helen Otterson, Michael Strand and David Swenson.

The Clothesline Project
