32nd Annual Juried Student Exhibition
April 14 - May 7, 2016
Each spring, current LMU art students are invited to enter Young Contemporaries and to have their work judged by two professionals from Los Angeles' art world. The Laband's annual juried student show features works of art in all the disciplines taught in LMU's art program including drawing, printmaking, photography, sculpture, painting, ceramics, graphic design, and new media. The exhibition provides an excellent professional experience for students and celebrates the amazing creativity brewing in LMU's art department.
Generous support for the exhibition is provided by The Friedman Family in memory of Andrea Kingaard Friedman '66 and by the Souther California Metal Arts Society.
