Loyola at a Glance
Art and Design seniors exhibit in Diboll Gallery
April 5, 2013
The Department of Art and Design at Loyola University New Orleans will boast the works of more than 15 of its seniors during three new exhibits in April and May. All events begin at 5 p.m., are free, open to the public and set for the Collins C. Diboll Art Gallery, located on the fourth floor of the J. Edgar and Louise S. Monroe Library.
“Flux,” this year’s installment of the annual graphic design senior student show, is the first in the series, opening Thursday, April 11. The artists will exhibit specific assigned projects as well as their individual final projects, based on the word “Flux,” which refers to graduating and moving on to another chapter of their lives.
The Bachelor of Arts studio exhibit will open Monday, April 22, and the Bachelor of Fine Arts exhibit will open Monday, May 6. Both senior shows are a culmination of a year’s worth of work in which the artists develop their own body of work that expresses ideas and processes derived from individual questions and concerns.
“The maturity and professionalism that each student brings to their work is superior. Their individuality and perception are very moving and poignant,” said visual arts professor Mark Grote. “The work speaks to real issues that have affected each personally; issues they feel deeply about are addressed. In spite of and because of each one’s private search, their work has a universal appeal.”
