Student-Created Exhibitions

Each year students are invited to create an artistic response to a particular topic or question. The responses, which can take a variety of forms and mediums, are then juried for inclusion in the student response exhibition for the following Spring semester. Listed below are a few recent student-created exhibitions.

 

It's Our World

In this eighth juried Student Response Exhibition (SRE), Miami University students are called upon to creatively respond to a theme - the Environment. This Fall 2023 SRE, It's Our World, will be one of two exhibitions during the 2023-2024 academic year developed in conjunction with Miami University's FOCUS theme of Sustainability led by the Institute for Environment and Sustainability.
