Studio Art Honors

Art majors with a cumulative grade point average of at least a 3.5 overall may apply to have their work evaluated for honors. Students will submit a written proposal that will be evaluated by Art faculty in the fall of their senior year. Selected students will go on to write a thesis to accompany their artwork in the senior exhibition and prepare an oral defense of their work. Students who complete these required thesis components and receive a grade of “A” will be recommended by the Art Field Group for honors.

There are four exhibition spaces to accommodate theses exhibitions. The Salathé Gallery, located in the lower level of McConnell Center, functions as a classroom lab and a gallery and is administered by members of the art faculty. The Nichols Gallery, located in Broad Center, is a spacious gallery that lends itself to large-scale painting, sculpture and performance activity. The Hinshaw Gallery, is an intimate domestic space located in the Grove House and is administered by the Grove House Committee. The Circle Gallery, located in the Gold Student Center, is a medium sized gallery that can accommodate free-standing and pedestal-based objects, as well as two-dimensional work. The Lenzner Gallery is appropriate for works in all mediums and is particularly suitable for film and video.
