Senior Fine Arts Capstone Exhibit opens April 17
The Senior Capstone Art Exhibition, which includes works by eight Indiana University East seniors, will be on display in the Room 912 Gallery, located at 912 E. Main Street in Richmond. An opening reception is scheduled from 5-7 p.m. Friday, April 17, at Room 912.

The exhibition is on display April 17–May 22. It is free and open to the public.

IU East’s Fine Arts Program requires students to complete a Senior Capstone Project to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts.  Each student must create an original body of work in their area of concentration during their senior year and display their creations in a final exhibition. This year’s exhibit includes paintings, photographs, drawings, ceramics and miniature figurines.

Ann Kim, assistant professor of fine arts, said, “As a part of the course, students were required to create a cohesive body of work and were in charge of not only planning and executing the production of the works, but also were responsible for promoting and installing the exhibition. They all also built an artist website to showcase their work online.”

Students exhibiting their artwork and the artists’ websites include:
