Faculty Art Exhibition: Recent Work
Every fall semester at Lake Forest College, the senior art majors enroll in a seminar designed to help the students transition from undergraduates to working artists. The students visited artist residencies, galleries, and studios in Chicago and were challenged to create three projects that reflected who they were as artists. The resulting senior show is a culmination of the work they have created throughout their college career showcasing how they view the world around them with their respective aesthetic and media. The art majors of the graduating class of 2017 would like to thank the Lake Forest Art Department for aiding in the growth of their creativity and the guidance in making them the artists they are today. They would especially like to thank Professor Karen Lebergott for giving them the confidence and mentorship to leave Lake Forest with the confidence to change the world through the power of art.
Artwork produced by students in Drawing, Painting, Ceramics, Graphic Design and Photography (both digital and film) is on display as part of the annual all-campus Student Symposium held April 11, 2017.
