The Visual Arts option is designed for students required to create studio work as a part of their graduate degree program and gives candidates the opportunity to demonstrate the significance of their ideas and creative research to jurors from outside of their field who score the works and award prizes.

This year’s Visual Arts Annual Graduate Research Exhibition features a variety of pieces speaking to the personal experiences of six different candidates. With a broad range of mediums spanning from ceramic to painting and fiber, each piece is compelling in its own way and demonstrates the diversity of artistic research by Penn State graduate students. The student’s works utilize creative symbolism to address critical issues such as the objectification of women, ecological concerns and a broad range of intimate personal struggles.

The Penn State community is encouraged to visit the exhibition in-person at HUB Gallery to experience this diverse collection of artworks. HUB Gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and admission is free for all, always.

HUB-Robeson Galleries welcome and encourage class, office, and student organization group visits. Student and staff-led tours are available, email if interested. University COVID-19 guidelines will be followed.
