SUU’S ART STUDENTS’ CREATIVITY SHOWCASED
IN ART INSIGHTS’ NINTH ANNUAL “SHOW OFF,”
NOVEMBER 18, 2010
Southern Utah University, Cedar City, Utah: SUU art students and their creativity take the spotlight for Art Insight’s ninth annual Show Off event. This special evening in SUU’s Department of Art and Design’s weekly lecture series, Art Insights, is scheduled for Thursday, November 18, 2010. The lecture begins at 7pm at SUU’s Convention Center in the Sharwan Smith Center. Admission is free and the general public is encouraged to attend.
Forgoing Art Insights’ usual visiting artist lecture/presentation format, the annual Show Off turns the focus on the students in SUU’s Art and Design program and showcases each participant’s best-of-the-semester work – thus each student “shows off their work.” This one-evening-only exhibition also makes much of the work available for purchase. The media featured in the event includes ceramic, watercolor, drawing, printmaking, oil painting, photography and other digital media.
Experience first-hand and up close the vibrant work of fledgling young artists. Attend Art Insights’ ninth annual Show Off. For more information on the SUU College of Performing and Visual Arts events, please call the Arts Hotline at (435) 865-8800, or visit www.suu.edu/arts.
