The Art & Design department hosted the annual student exhibit from March 20 – April 8, featuring the work of many talented artists in the program. Multiple awards were distributed by the faculty. Tyler Beauchesne ’17 received many awards, including one for his “MJ Going Right,” a piece that recently placed in the Society of Illustrators of New York’s Annual Student Scholarship Competition. Beauchesne’s colored pencil drawing, pictured above, was one of 254 acceptances from over 9,000 entries around the country.
