Juried Student Show

Because of the measures taken to prevent the spread of Covid-19, the Truman State University Art Gallery will closed for the remainder of the 2020 spring and summer calendar. We’re sorry to announce that the 2020 Juried Student Exhibition and the spring BA/BFA capstone exhibitions will be canceled.
The Annual Juried Student Exhibition is always one of the highlights of the year in the University Art Gallery. We’re sad we won’t be able to invite visitors to view the art of our hardworking Truman students in person this spring. However, you can check out these photographs of the student artworks selected for juror awards (before spring break) by this year’s juror, Barry Anderson, Professor of Art at UMKC. Congratulations again to all the students who were selected for the show and to those who received awards!
