Walker Art and Design Show

  • Apr 19 – Apr 23, 2010 8:00 AM – 5:00PM
  • Rozsa Gallery

The students of Mary Ann Beckwith and Susanne Kilpela will display the artwork they've produced in Visual & Performing Arts classes this year in the annual Student Show, open today through Friday, April 23, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm in the Rozsa Art Gallery. The new gallery is located on the lower lobby level in the Rozsa Center.

"Lots of great artwork!" says Susanne Kilpela, who teaches ceramics, 3-D design, sculpture and drawing. A wide variety of student work is on view, at least one piece from each student, in a wide variety of media and styles. Michigan Tech offers a minor in visual arts, although not a major, so students from across campus bring many different perspectives and motivations to their work in Kilpela's and Beckwith's classes. "Although many students come to Michigan Tech with art skills, many others discover their abilities through these classes," Kilpela says. "It's great to watch that happen."

The student show is open to the public during Rozsa business hours.
