Printer-friendly version Share
2013 Graduate Exhibition

Thirty-five College of Arts and Architecture students are participating in the 28th Annual Graduate Exhibition, which celebrates research in all its aspects as an essential and exciting part of graduate education at Penn State. The exhibition places special emphasis on communicating research and creative endeavors to a general audience and challenges graduate students to present their work in clear, comprehensible terms to people outside their fields.

The exhibition is open to all currently enrolled degree-seeking graduate students who wish to present their scholarly work. The performance exhibition is Friday, March 22, 7:00 p.m., Eisenhower Auditorium; research presentations are Sunday, March 24, noon-3:00 p.m., Alumni and Heritage Halls, HUB-Robeson Center; and visual arts exhibitions are on display, March 22-April 21, HUB Art Gallery (adjacent to the auditorium). All events are free and open to the public.

According to Bill Doan, professor of theatre and associate dean of research and graduate studies in the College of Arts and Architecture, Penn State is one of only a few universities nationwide that offer a comprehensive exhibition of graduate research and creative activities. “Students from across our college have done very well, from the poster sessions, to the performances, to the visual arts exhibition. Each year, they do an excellent job representing the breadth and depth of research happening across Arts and Architecture.”
