The Philip and Muriel Berman Museum of Art will host its Annual Student Exhibition, which showcases the work of art students and art majors. The exhibition opens April 27 and runs through May 14. An opening reception is planned for Wednesday April 27 from 3 to 5 p.m., with an award ceremony at 4:30 p.m. in the Museum Main Gallery. An “after party” will take place in the Ritter Art Studio Gallery from 5 to 7 p.m., where refreshments will be available.
Art students and majors in the disciplines of painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, installations, mixed media, and photography will have their work showcased in the exhibition. They will be recognized for their excellence in specific media with special awards such as, the Rinde Award for Environmental Awareness, the Beadle Marple Art Award for Creativity, the Lawrence Reichlin Award for Understanding, and Director’s and Popular Choice Recognition. Other awards and prizes will be given out as well. A major purchase prize is funded by Winnifred Cutler 1973, and additional purchase prizes are offered by the Myrin Library.
