Student showcasing his artworkAre you an artist thinking about applying to the 2022 Visual Art and Design Showcase but don’t know where to start? Join us for an informational session where you will learn about this amazing undergraduate experience, how to apply, the process of the exhibition and the benefits of participating.

ANY undergraduate student who has received faculty mentorship on their project may apply. (This does not have to be a class project! Any project for which the student has received advice, instruction and/or feedback on the item from a Mizzou faculty member is eligible.)

Projects have included the “typical” art projects, as well as: 3D-printing projects, strategic communication projects, theatre/stage design, costuming, graphic design, jewelry, apparel and sculptural works.
