Tech Art Walkabout Reception December 14, 2015

Did you know that nearly 90 percent of students in visual arts classes at Michigan Tech are seniors, and are majors in other fields?

According to Susanne Kilpela (VPA), “Most of my Ceramics 1 and Drawing 1 students are graduating seniors, and while they are getting degrees in engineering, chemistry, mathematics, etc., their work is just beautiful. It could be in a professional art gallery. I wanted to be able to showcase their art before they graduate!”

It is also Kilpela’s tenth anniversary as a visual arts professor at Michigan Tech, and she is presenting this Tech Art Walkabout as an opportunity to celebrate both her students and her longtime work at Michigan Tech.

Join us from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, December 14, 2015, in Walker 202 for a reception and “open art studio.” Some work may be available for purchase. This event is free and open to the public.
