Opening of Fan Art Exhibit kicks off the student exhibit series

Each year students apply to become members of the Exhibit Committee of the Art Honor Society.  If accepted, they host a series of student run exhibits in the Library Gallery.  Exhibit Committee members are responsible for setting the themes, creating flyers for the call for work as well as the exhibit invitation, installing the show, hosting the reception and taking down the show.

For our first show, students chose the theme of Fan Art and Cos Paint.
