Student art is selected for the annual exhibition by an expert in the field of art who has an understanding of undergraduate art works. An independent juror is invited to select art works and awards, and to provide an educational experience for students in preparation for professional careers in art. This year, Juror Arturo Sandoval, professor of art at the University of Kentucky, selected works for the show on Thursday and presented the juror’s lecture that evening. Sandoval is known internationally for his innovative weavings and mixed media art quilts. Read the Juror's Statement.
