This Biannual exhibition is an opportunity for students to see their mentor’s skills and theories put to practice in a diverse array of styles and media. The exhibition includes a variety of works from the artist who provide inspiration to WSU students daily, allowing them to observe their mentors put skill and theory into practice.
The Curator’s Choice exhibit in 2009 will feature recent acquisitions as well as some classic favorites from the Museum’s permanent collection.
