This virtual exhibition features the Senior Art Inquiry projects of graphic design, art history and studio art majors in Augustana College’s Class of 2021.
Each student’s work is accompanied by a statement sharing their perspectives and intentions for the artwork. The work in this exhibition was created as a culmination of their classes and individual development as artists and graphic designers.
Special thanks go to Jennifer Saintfort, interim museum director, and the faculty members of studio art, graphic design and art history for their help in making this exhibition possible.
