Elmhurst Art Department to Feature All Students’ Work

December 4, 2014 | by the Office of Communications and Public Affairs

The accomplishments of all Elmhurst College students enrolled in fall art courses will be highlighted in the Fall Student Art Exhibition.

Displayed salon style and entirely filling the walls of the Founders Lounge in the Frick Center, the art represented in this show demonstrates the full range of media produced by art students, including paintings, drawings, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, graphic design and digital art.

“There are two things that I especially enjoy about this exhibition,” said Suellen Rocca, Elmhurst College’s curator and director of exhibitions. “First, the exhibition showcases all the various facets of artmaking that occur in the Elmhurst College Art Department. Secondly, the show is a very democratic display, as we try to display a work by each student who has participated in an art class during fall term.”

The show runs through December 12 in the Founders Lounge of the Frick Center, which is open days and evenings. The show is free, and the public is welcome.

The Fall Student Art Exhibition is one of roughly a dozen shows that Elmhurst College will present this academic year in three different campus venues.

The College also exhibits more than 100 works in its Student Art Collection, which features selected exemplary work purchased from graduating seniors. The collection is on permanent display on the third floor and lower level of the A.C. Buehler Library. The library also is home to the College’s unparalleled collection of Chicago Imagist and Abstractionist Art, which explores the vibrant, often outrageous, yet precisely crafted works of Chicago artists between 1950 and the present. The collection is displayed throughout the library’s first floor and lower vestibule.

The exhibits are free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Suellen Rocca at (630) 617-6110 or srocca@elmhurst.edu.
