The annual senior art exhibit is currently on display, showcasing some of the best art installations of the Class of 2021 at Lenoir-Rhyne University.
The exhibit is on display through May 7, 2021, in Belk Centrum.
"The 2021 graduating class of art majors holds a special place in my heart," said Claire Pope, art program coordinator at LR. "These students began their collegiate art studies at LR at the same time I was beginning my position. As such, we have grown together through the creation of a community of artists, navigating best practices and learning from each other. I have had the honor of witnessing the journey of these artists as they seek to find their place as humans and creatives in society through a process of becoming through their art."
Students tailored their work to their interests.
