Lincoln, Neb. - The annual Celebration of Graduate Student Work will be Thursday, March 10, from noon to 4 p.m. in the Van Brunt Visitors Center at 13th and Q sts. The event is free and open to the public.
"This event gives us a wonderful opportunity to showcase the work of our graduate students in the Arts in an informal setting, one in which the students can have a personal dialogue with those who come to view the various graduate projects," said Giacomo M. Oliva, endowed dean of the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts. "It also offers our graduate students an opportunity to interact and share their work with graduate students from the Colleges of Architecture and Education and Human Sciences."
Twenty-two graduate students from the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts (School of Music, Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film, and Department of Art and Art History), the College of Architecture, and the College of Education and Human Sciences (Department of Textiles, Clothing and Design) will display their work at the showcase. Visitors then have the opportunity to view their work, talk with the graduate students about their creative process, and ask questions about their projects.
Some of the projects include a selection of sculpture and ceramic pieces by art students; a presentation on using YouTube to promote group composition activities by a music student; costume designs by theatre students; healthcare studio design work by architecture and interior design students; and a selection of apparel and handbag designs by a textiles student.
