The Penn State School of Visual Arts’ fall 2016 undergraduate exhibition, Anything Goes, presents a multitude of themes as the artists’ experiment with diverse media and conceptual approaches to subject matter as they progress in their degrees. The title is suggestive of the array of media on display, which includes installation, photography, ceramics, painting, sculpture, printmaking, and performance, all showcasing the unique talent of our undergraduate students. Anything Goes, however, is also the product of careful planning and organization that included a large group of undergraduates involving first year students through to seniors. Prepared in consultation with Assistant Professor Brian Alfred, an exhibition team lead by seniors, Elise Warfield and Jackie Lawlor, as chief curators, were well supported by curatorial assistants, Victoria Oishi, Chelsea Stieglitz and Carly Fuga; an installation team coordinated by April Zhu, along with Cindy Cao, Kenzi Penn, Samantha Smith, and Natalie Hall; and press and communications support provided by Emmi Driscoll, Ariana Deng, and Sam Consoli.
Anything Goes is on display in SoVA's Edwin W. Zoller Gallery through Friday, October 14. Free and open to the public, please join us for the exhibition reception Monday, October 10, beginning at 5:00 p.m. in the gallery. Light refreshments will be provided. Let's welcome in the fall semester with the first show of undergraduate work!
