2016 <em>Art Rush</em>

2016 Art Rush

The Art Rush Exhibition is curated and developed by MUSM 190 Art and Exhibit Prep Students. This exhibition is always a fantastic opportunity and a unique challenge for our students that allows for a hands-on experience in preparing an exhibition. The MUSM 190 students collaborate on a design plan, ready the gallery space, paint walls, prepare the art for display, and work on the installation. Students are encouraged to work together to make a truly unique exhibition.
