Senior art majors display work in annual exhibit

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.
