Student Exhibitions and Film Screenings
The Program in Visual Arts sponsors numerous student art exhibitions and film/video screenings throughout the course of the year. At the conclusion of every semester, there are exhibitions of student work selected from each of the visual arts courses in painting, drawing, ceramics, photography, digital photography and printmaking.
In addition to group shows, student art is also featured in one-person exhibitions that include the junior independent studio shows and the senior thesis shows. Equivalent to Princeton's renowned written thesis, the senior thesis show is of major importance and a requirement for graduation. The show serves as the culmination of a student's coursework in visual arts and represents an entire year of their studio work. It also serves as the launch of a career for the student artist. Student art exhibitions are held at the Lucas Gallery in the Lewis Center for the Arts. Click here to view our alumni gallery.
Film and video screenings of student work are held concurrent with the openings of the art exhibitions and held in the James M. Stewart '32 Theater, also in the Lewis Center for the Arts. All student exhibitions and screenings are free and open to the public.

"I find my art enriched by all the culture on campus. There's nothing more inspiring than being exposed to great ideas by great professors, even if they are in other disciplines."
