Studio Art Student Life

Studio Art Senior Exhibition

In their senior year, Studio Art majors have the opportunity to mount an exhibition of their work. Students gain the real-world experience of mounting a professional show, from creating a cohesive body of artwork, to designing the exhibition lay-out, lighting, and publicity materials. A reception is held for each exhibition, where family, friends, and members of the community can celebrate the achievement.

This experience is the culmination and celebration of an art student's career at Santa Clara and is a requirement for graduation.


Student Art Juried Exhibition

The Department of Art and Art History's annual juried exhibition showcases the diversity of media and practices in our Studio Art program. All Santa Clara students are given an opportunity to enter their artwork for a chance to be selected by a visiting juror to be featured in the exhibition. Prizes are awarded in each category (i.e. Sculpture, Photography), as well as "Best in Show."
