About the Showcase

Visit VADS now!

The Visual Art and Design Showcase is a venue for Mizzou undergraduate students to display and discuss their scholarly work in an exhibition setting. During a typical year, the works of approximately 50 students are displayed in Jesse Hall and feature a variety of artistic expression and applied design, including works of photojournalism, graphic design, architectural drawing, theatre set design, painting, sculpting, textile and apparel design, mixed media, and digital storytelling.

Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Visual Art and Design Showcase will be online hosted by the MU Libraries website.
