Current Student Work in the Messler Gallery 4/15 - 5/25

Written by Michaela Stone on .

It is so thrilling to see the incredible work the Nine-month Comprehensive students have created in one place. Each year we watch the hard work and energy, the experiments, challenges, and occasional failures that the students have to push through and learn from in order to produce finished work; and each year it is a delight to walk into the Messler Gallery, the day before the student show opens, and witness the astounding payoff.


Current Student Work is open until May 25th. Don't miss it!
