Galleries and Exhibitions
The Fine Arts Division oversees exhibitions in the three campus galleries. Changing exhibitions are hosted in the Hess Gallery in Zug Hall and the Lyet Gallery on the second floor of Leffler Chapel. Works on loan and objects from the permanent collection are displayed in the McCormick Gallery on the first floor of Leffler Chapel.
The Fine Arts Division hosts works by local, regional and national artists in one-person, two-person and group shows. Special exhibitions are organized by art faculty, students and outside curators.
The Handprint Identity Project, a traveling exhibition of art and poetry, was conceived and curated by Elizabethtown art faculty member and gallery director Milt Friedly with student curator Tom Yurkovic. This exhibition was displayed in the Hess and Lyet Galleries in 2008 and traveled to West Chester University in January 2010.
Students have the opportunity to exhibit in the Annual Juried Student Show. Graduating art majors display their work together in the annual Senior Show. Fine Arts majors receive hands-on training through the gallery program which prepares them for careers as professional artists as well as introducing them to gallery and museum work. Recently students had the opportunity to work with a local museum curator and a professional marketing and design firm in organizing and on-campus exhibition. These experiences are integrated into the art program through course work, student assistants and internships.
