Our American Institute of Graphic Artists (AIGA) Students in Design group conducts professional seminars and promotes interaction with national professional graphic design communities. Membership in this group affords students affiliation with national AIGA, giving them benefits such as entry into local and national design competitions, scholarships, student and professional conferences and seminars, and exposure to the broader spectrum of design practice.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Clay Club is a student organization that is a forum for free thought towards the intellectual, conceptual and formal qualities of functional pottery and sculptural ceramics. Through bi-annual sales, Clay Club raises the funds necessary to bring internationally recognized artists to Lincoln for demonstrations, critiques and lectures. In addition, Clay Club financially supports student attendance of NCECA, the National Conference of Ceramic Artists. All Clay Club events are free and open to the public.
All enrolled students in Ceramics are eligible to participate in Clay Club. Participation includes the planning and execution of the Clay Club Sale, the Visiting Artist Program and NCECA Attendance. For more information about meetings and opportunities, please contact Stuart Gair, Clay Club President.
