Celebration of grad student work is March 2

The Van Brunt Visitors Center will host a multi-discipline celebration of graduate student work from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 2. The event is free and open to the public.

The celebration includes the work of 26 UNL graduate students from music, theatre and film, art and art history, architecture, and textiles, clothing and design. The graduate students will be available to talk with and answer questions from individuals who attend.

"This event gives us a wonderful 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 Giacomo Oliva, dean of the Hixson-Lied College 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."

Entries include three architecture projects that examine the reconstruction of New Orleans by Leslie Hill, Bruce Yoder, Matt Smith and Kristin Ubben; a consideration of the organic world through the framework of print by Jewell Noll; an exhibition of digital textiles by Andrew Boettger; a study of historic costumes by Helen Nosova; and the original musical composition "Minimal Effort" by Jeffrey Richmond.

The event is sponsored by the Office of Graduate Studies, the College of Fine and Performing Arts, the College of Architecture, the College of Education and Human Sciences and the Van Brunt Visitors Center.
