Lincoln, Neb.--The Fall 2020 Virtual Capstone Exhibition: Stay Home Spread Art will go live at http://unlcapstone.com/2020-fall/ on Nov. 23. This culminating experience features documentation of capstone projects from graduating undergraduate candidates for Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degrees from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s School of Art, Art History & Design.
Normally held in the Eisentrager-Howard Gallery and the surrounding display spaces in Richards Hall, the biannual Capstone Exhibitions satisfies the degree requirements for these students to share their work. Due to COVID-19 and the current social distancing restrictions, the Capstone Exhibition is available this fall only as a virtual experience.
“This is our second online Capstone Exhibition, following our first one last May,” said Eisentrager-Howard Gallery Director Patricia Davis. "We’re learning and trying to figure out how to adapt due to new circumstances—how to survive and react while looking ahead to possibilities. Ultimately, I hope this moment of virtual exploration has provided us with an opportunity to build on our current exhibition models and find creative ways to meet the display needs and goals of our growing program. I continue to be impressed with my colleagues and our students as they rise to the challenges of our current reality. This online experience is proof of that teamwork and innovation, and I hope people visit the site to see the results.”
On Friday, Dec. 18 at 5 p.m. CT, the School of Art, Art History & Design will host a virtual celebration via Zoom where Director Francisco Souto will announce the awards. Selected by the School of Art, Art History & Design faculty, the awards are given to students whose works display creative and technical excellence. The reception is open to the public and can be accessed at https://unl.zoom.us/j/97119979428.
