The Studio Art division of the Art Department hosts an art walk at the end of each semester that serves as a chance for students to showcase their work in exhibit spaces around campus. This fall, with the pandemic limiting viewing opportunities, the showcase became virtual. 

Studio art and visual art majors presented their work in the senior studio Half-Time Show, a December exhibition at the Richard D. Baron ’64 Art Gallery. This group exhibit surveyed explorations from the first half of the senior capstone course. Students in other courses presented work throughout the Art Department’s hallways and classrooms. 

“These exhibitions are important curricular milestones to celebrate, even when large in-person events cannot occur,” says Rachel Smith, fabrication lab supervisor and one of organizers of last semester’s Studio Art Walk. 

“We are proud to present the senior studio Half-Time Show virtually and in photograph form,” adds Smith. “Additionally, we hope you will enjoy submissions from art students as well as a survey of works completed in a number of our classes via the Flickr albums at the bottom of the gallery page.”
