The 24th annual juried exhibition is open to all Brown students. Past exhibitions have included works in a wide range of media, from painting and sculpture, to printmaking and video installations. Each student is allowed to submit two works for evaluation by the judges.
The exhibition provides students with the valuable experience of showing their work within a professional setting. At the same time, it provides the Brown and Providence communities an opportunity to view works by talented young artists.
