Take a look at the biennial Fine Arts and Digital Media Faculty Exhibit and an exhibit featuring work by Fine Arts and Digital Media alumni that was offered for the Fall 2020 semester. The consecutive exhibits are titled “Home Alone 1” and “Home Alone 2,” a reference to the COVID-19 pandemic that’s kept many people mostly at home for several months, and includes work created during this period of mandated isolation.
