Every Fall and Spring Murphy Library host an exhibition of artworks completed by students enrolled in any art foundations classes at UW-L. This semester, classes taught by Binod Shresthra, Bradley Nichols, Stella Vognar, and  Randy Reeves will be showing their works in the library.  The works range from sculptures, videos, photographs, drawings, paintings, books,and many other art mediums. For this exhibition the artworks were curated by students enrolled in the classes.

Foundations courses at UW-L within the Department of Art explore visual arts as a language to investigate and understand the inherent role visual art plays in society and the development of culture. Students use close observation, analysis of visual perceptions, and experiences with various drawing, digital, and three dimensional materials to expand visual vocabulary and to synthesize concepts/thematic development with creative process and design concerns. This capstone student juried exhibition demonstrates our students’ effort in investigating visual art as a language in the context of liberal arts education.

This art exhibition is made possible by a partnership between Murphy Library and the Art Department.
