The Fall 2014 Bachelor of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition will run Dec. 4-20 at the Schneider Hall Galleries. An opening reception will be held Dec. 4 from 5 to 7 p.m. 

The student artists will display artwork in a variety of mediums including sculpture, drawing, painting and more. Each student’s collection is comprised of pieces that represent the artist’s unique vision and his or her readiness to enter the professional art world after graduation.
