Graduate students in the Fine Arts Studio Art Program in the School of Fine Arts, Art History, and Design will host their annual open studio and raffle on November 11 from 6-8pm.
Hosted by the student-run Visual Artists in Practice, the event is free and open to the public. Studios will open in Richards Hall (B2F) and Woods Art Building (B3F).
Open Studio is an opportunity for graduate students to open their doors to the community and discuss their work.
“It’s a chance to converse with students and community members who may not have seen our work before, and make deeper connections with people outside of our cohort,” says graduate student Visual Artists in Jewelya Coffey, President of Practice, said. “This is a big night for us, not only because we can show you what we’re making in the studio, but because we can share the art at a low cost.”
Each participating graduate student will have a portion of the raffle that participants can try to win by purchasing a ticket. Tickets are $1 and accept cash only. The raffle draw will take place at 8:15pm. Winners do not have to be present to win.
“By purchasing these tickets, graduate students can participate in joint events throughout the year,” says Coffey. “This year we will have maps for each studio. Visiting each graduate student’s studio will earn you an extra raffle ticket for her.”
Visual Artists in Practice is an organization for graduate students pursuing master’s degrees in fine arts and art history. Designed to foster interaction and community among graduate students, the university and the entire Lincoln community through student-led initiatives and programs and events hosted by graduate student leaders.
