Because of our Hixson-Lied endowment, we are able to provide unique opportunities outside of class. You will connect with guest artists, scholars, and designers that we bring to campus each year, and may receive funding support for travel and exhibitions.
Education Abroad Opportunities Summer 2018 - Japanese Visual Culture in Context
"Japanese Visual Culture in Context" is taught by UNL Dana Fritz. The course is a partnership between the Department of Art and Art History in the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts and the College of Journalism and Mass Communications.
Students who participate in the three-week summer program will sharpen their perceptual and analytical skills through daily drawing, writing, and photography while in Japan. They will also visit several significant cultural sites in Japan to study fine art.
The MEDICI Gallery is located on the first floor of Richards Hall. It functions as an exhibition laboratory and is entirely run by students. The gallery typically features experimental and improvisational shows that are up for a short time.
As an undergraduate research assistant, you’ll interact closely with a faculty advisor to conduct research on a topic you propose. Together, you and your faculty advisor will draft a research abstract, outlining the expectations the faculty advisor has of you while you hold the assistantship.
