"Senior Visual Arts students have produced an impressive body of work this spring," said Akus Gallery Director Elizabeth Peterson. "This includes bold, incisive public service posters, engaging product designs, lushly painted oils, encaustics, acrylics, polished and contemplative sculptures, and fantastic children's book illustration among other media. It is clear this graduating class is well prepared to face a tough, competitive art market."
The Visual Arts Department at Eastern offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History, Digital Art and Design, Painting and Drawing, Printmaking and Sculpture.
