Elmhurst College Seniors Present Culminating Art Projects

April 23, 2016 | by the Office of Communications and Public Affairs

Senior art students will explore a number of compelling themes, ranging from photographs that look beneath negative stigmas of women, to “behind-the-scenes” portraits from The Wizard of Oz, during the Elmhurst College Art Department’s 48th Annual Spring Capstone Art Exhibition.

The high point for every graduating art major, the Capstone Exhibition requires students to create a body of work in their area of concentration, then plan the exhibition and design all of the promotional materials for it.

This year’s exhibition features the work of nine art students working in a variety of media, including ceramics, multimedia, oil painting, photography, silk screening and graphic design.

The seniors who will display their artwork include:

  • Brittany Cavanaugh, Mt. Prospect, Ill. (Drawing, Painting and Digital Imaging)
  • Corinne Jaracz, Plainfield, Ill. (Photography)
  • Samantha Korsak, Palos Heights, Ill. (Digital Imaging)
  • Shayna Lacey, Elmhurst, Ill. (Drawing and Painting)
  • Lina Hammadeh, Westmont, Ill. (Drawing and Painting)
  • Dora Martinez, Lake Bluff, Ill. (Ceramics)
  • Fabian Vasquez, Lyons, Ill. (Graphic Design)
  • Rachael Minnick, Indian River, Mich. (Graphic Design)
  • Bryttany Tartt, Tinley Park, Ill. (Graphic Design)
