All are welcome to the opening walk from 2-4 p.m. on March 25 to meet current graduate visual arts students and learn about their studio practices.

With a wide range of mediums from ceramic to paint and fiber, each piece is compelling in its own way and demonstrates the diversity of Penn State graduate student artistic pursuits. Student work uses creative symbolism to address critical issues such as the objectification of women, ecological concerns, and a wide range of intimate personal struggles.
