2021 All Student Juried Exhibition

Curated by Teliza Rodriguez

2/17/2021 - 3/12/2021

The All-Student Art Exhibition is an annual tradition at the Department of Visual Arts. Any student on campus is invited to submit art to this juried exhibition.

The judge is always an art professional who is not affiliated with Hastings College. This year's judge is Teliza Rodriguez, former Curator of the Museum of Nebraska Art.

This year twenty-five students submitted fifty-seven artworks. Of these the judge picked nineteen items for inclusion in the exhibition.

Thanks to our crew of student gallery assistants, who did most of the installation of this show. They are Karlie Norton, Anna Wilwerding and Sydnie Waldron.

Thanks also to Cara Kimberly, the office administrator in the Jackson Dinsdale Art Center. Cara organized the entire submissions process and organized an effective system to make the judge's work manageable.

The judge named three award recipients. They are:
