Fall Art Exhibition Showcases Student Work

November 25, 2019 | by the Office of Marketing and Communications

The accomplishments of all Elmhurst College students enrolled in Fall Term art courses will be highlighted during 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, graphic design and digital art.

“This exhibition includes students taking art courses as an art major, a fine-art requirement or an elective,” said Elmhurst College Exhibitions Director Suellen Rocca. “It is a great opportunity for all Elmhurst College students to see the variety of work that is produced in the art department. A student thinking about taking an art course has an opportunity to see what is studied in each class.”

The show runs through Dec. 13 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 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 exhibits are free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Suellen Rocca at (630) 617-6110 or srocca@elmhurst.edu.
