Juried Student Show

Juried Student Show



December 6 - January 14, 2004
Opening: Monday, Dec. 6th 5:00-7:00


This is a competitive exhibition open to all students at Hope College.  An important part of any art student’s formation is to have critical feedback from outside the College.  Each year, the Department of Art and Art History invites a recognized artist or curator to judge the student work.  This year’s show includes works by more than 30 Hope students in a wide variety of media, including painting, photography, sculpture, drawing, printmaking and ceramics. Prof. Joseph Becherer, who is a professor of art history at Aquinas College and curator of sculpture at Frederick Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park is the guest juror for this year's show.
