RECAP: College of Fine Arts Student Showcase

Published November 19, 2018

On Friday, November 16, 2018, the College of Fine Arts hosted the second annual College of Fine Arts Student Showcase at the Augustus B. Turnbull Conference Center. Twelve outstanding students, both graduate and undergraduate, presented on a range of topics from across our six departments.

The College of Fine Arts Student Showcase brings together the greater FSU community to learn about the creative research of our high-achieving students.

Two students from each department – ArtArt EducationArt HistoryDanceInterior Architecture & Design, and Theatre – presented projects on major topics from their studies. Our 2018 presenters included students who wrote their own plays, designed offices for major corporate companies, and even presented research at a national conference. It’s clear that our students are pushing the boundaries within their fields of study!

The twelve presentations were divided into two sessions which allowed student presenters to share their research in a variety of formats including: videos, lectures, books, and posters. Attendees were invited to meet individually with the students to ask questions in an intermission breakout session. Attendees enjoyed learning about student work across our departments and they had the chance to discover common themes from each discipline.
