The annual Celebration of Graduate Student Work is 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 12 in the Van Brunt Visitors Center.

The event is free and open to the public.

Projects of 28 graduate students from the colleges of Fine and Performing Arts, Architecture, and Education and Human Sciences will be on display.

Visitors will have the opportunity to view the work and discuss the projects with the graduate students.

“This event gives us an opportunity to showcase the work of our graduate students in the arts in an informal setting, one in which the students can have a personal dialogue with those who come to view the various graduate projects,” said Jack Oliva, dean of Fine and Performing Arts. “It also offers our graduate students an opportunity to interact and share their work with graduate students from the Colleges of Architecture and Education and Human Sciences.”

Some of this year’s projects include health care design studio collaborations done by interior design and architecture students, a selection of contemporary printmaking processes, an examination of the music in the Rambo movies, two homemade dresses from a collection titled “Lyrical Protection,” and the Red Theater project, which featured a small company of actors who perform 30 original plays in 60 minutes.
