OSU Art Students Exhibit Work at the Botanic Garden



More than 60 Art students have work that is currently on display at the OSU Botanic Garden. Students enrolled in the 3-Dimensional Design courses have installed their final projects at the South Entrance to the Garden, just off of 6th Street, next to Cow Creek. Their assignment required them to construct a functional chair using very limited material and helped them learn about structure and woodworking. The exhibition will be on display through December 14th and is free and open to the public.

Art Students Transform Postal Plaza


 Our art students display their work on the walls of the Postal Plaza in downtown Stillwater. Students from the classes of Professors Liz Roth and Angie Piehl spent several days drawing on the walls of the post office. Just days after the opening the demolition began in preparation for the new OSU Museum of Art. Angie Piehl and a few students were interviewed for OSU's Ok State You Tube News Channel. To see more of the art work and the demolition project check out Professor Louise Siddon's Art Collection Blog.
