Please join the Department of Art and the rest of our community in congratulating our graduating students and 5th Year Aunspaugh Fellows on the work they have done and the exhibitions we now get to enjoy in Ruffin Hall. 

Thesis shows in Studio Art are the culmination of four academic years of undergraduate liberal arts at UVA. We, as faculty & staff, are incredibly proud of the hard work all of our students put into their creative practices and exhibitions. Students are involved with the production and installation of these exhibitions and gain valuable experience in the handling and hanging of important works of all types, as well as the work of hosting their own receptions. We all come together as a department during these Friday student exhibition receptions to recognize the student’s successful completion of the major.
