Show Description

After a pandemic-induced hiatus, the School of Art and Art History proudly reinstates the decades-long tradition of the Juried Student Show. This exhibition serves not only as a showcase for exceptional student talent, but also as an invaluable experiential learning opportunity. It allows students to hone their professional practice by navigating the selection process, exhibition installation, and audience engagement, all while sharing their creativity with the wider community.


This year's iteration, juried by Associate Curator at Pérez Art Museum Miami Jennifer Inacio, promises to be particularly captivating. From a pool of 162 submissions, Inacio meticulously selected 53 diverse works by 42 undergraduate and graduate students across a spectrum of mediums: painting, sculpture, video, photography, ceramics, textile, performance, and digital art. In Inacio’s words, “the selected works delve into the intricacies of everyday existence and explore the complex currents of socio-political landscapes. Within this dynamic group, artists celebrate their personal histories and ancestral roots, while others boldly challenge social concerns, revealing their commitment to pushing the boundaries of aesthetic and conceptual realms. Through a keen awareness of the evolving complexities of contemporary life, these talents unite in their shared pursuit of leveraging art's potential to articulate and shape the ever-changing narratives of our time.”


Thanks to the generous support of Gary R. Libby, the Juried Student Show has transcended mere exhibition space and morphed into a vibrant platform for engagement. The diverse practices students embrace find a home here, sparking meaningful dialogue about the world we inhabit and the stories we choose to tell.
