Calling all BS Art, BFA, and BS Art Education students,

You are formally invited to join us for our FIRST EVER meeting of the Art Guild! The Art Guild is a new student organization that will provide resources specifically for art students on campus; this will include group critique, field trips, exhibition opportunities, professional practices and much more. Our goal is to create a productive, out of classroom environment and a space for students pursuing careers in art to interact.

Our first informational meeting will be Wednesday, September 19th at 7:30pm in room 6261 Humanities. We hope to see you there!
