Universities are cloaked in traditions and the Mulvane Art Museum isn’t about to start breaking any. For the past 96 spring semesters, the Mulvane Art Museum has installed an Art Student Exhibition featuring the intellect of Washburn University art students. Despite this unprecedented time in which we find ourselves, the annual exhibit will open as scheduled, only in a new virtual exhibition format. Opening Friday, April 3 on MulvaneArtMuseum.org, the public has an opportunity to experience the creativity and skill of these fresh, emerging artist.

The 2020 Art Student Exhibition features 40 works of art selected by juror Brandi Lee Cooper. Visitors to the Mulvane’s exhibition page on the website will be able to look through an image gallery of these works and the juror’s statement. Please take the time to appreciate these works and nurture the facilitation of creative thought and intellectual growth through the exhibitions new platform.
