Exhibitions by regional, national, and international artists feature artwork that serve as models of technical mastery, formal sophistication, and intellectual engagement. Supporting the educational mission of the department and the college, exhibiting artists are invited to campus to speak at opening receptions and to interact with students and the wider community.
Hiram’s Art & Design, Film Studies, and Photography students also have the opportunity to gain valuable professional experience working as gallery assistants. Doing so allows them to meet the professional artists displaying their work, practice secretarial and organization skills, and learn high quality display techniques for artwork.
Finally, they have the opportunity to exhibit artwork in our Annual Juried Student Show and the Annual Film Festival, competing for a variety of awards. Additionally, students may have the chance to display their artwork in their senior year in a senior class exhibition.
