Presented by First Year Art and Design

First Impressions is an exhibition that celebrates the work of faculty and students in the First Year Art and Design programs and attempts to find linkages between faculty’s professional practice and their teaching.

First Impressions reflects the importance that First Year faculty places on students to uncover their own talents and identities. Whatever the lessons learned, in all mediums, students are asked to arm themselves with tools, ideas and interests that fuel their future careers as artists and designers.

All are welcome!
