Final piece titled MotherSUU’s faculty in the Department of Art & Design continue to shatter this old adage, “those who can’t do, teach”, with this year’s Art & Design Faculty Exhibit. The exhibit is on display in the Southern Utah Museum of Art (SUMA) from now to March 18, 2017. Admission to the museum is free of charge and open to the general public.

The 2017 Art & Design Faculty Exhibit is the inaugural faculty show at SUMA and features over 20 local artists and educators. The department is excited to present the work of 13 full-time Art & Design faculty who practice in a variety of media, including painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, fibers, digital, and graphic design. Works by part-time faculty are also exhibited. This is an opportunity for the community to view and celebrate the work of SUU’s distinguished faculty who have earned regional, national, and international recognition for excellence in their art making. The variety of the exhibit expresses many different perspectives and features work from functional to abstract to whimsical – this show provides something for everyone to enjoy.

Jeff Hanson, Chair of SUU’s Department of Art & Design, said, “I am thrilled to see the amazing work of my colleagues each year at this event. The work will bring you joy, challenge you, make you think. Ultimately you’ll see work from some of the notable art makers in our community who have dedicated their lives to art and passing their knowledge on to the next generation.”
