Art graduates showcase their work in online symposium
The Roadrunner community is invited to view students’ inspiring senior experience projects.
June 1, 2020
Typically, Metropolitan State University of Denver Department of Art students cap their senior experience course with a dynamic, art-filled symposium at the Center for Visual Art. Graduating seniors present their work and research, engage with attendees and celebrate their growth and achievement. As with many things, however, the COVID-19 pandemic upended that tradition.
Instead, the Bachelor of Arts graduates — together with Matthew Jenkins, associate professor, Art — developed an online symposium to showcase their work. The site features the work of 19 students; 12 are graduates of the Art program, and five are graduates in Art History, Theory and Criticism. This year, their research spans the globe, exploring the art of ancient Egypt, Rome and Peru, and modern societal issues — including the pandemic and mental health — inspired original works.
“I’m really proud of the perseverance of these students, and I look forward to hearing about their future accomplishments in the art world,” said Jenkins.
