It’s always special when students participate in a summer exchange program, traveling to new places and absorbing the culture. But this summer will be the first-ever art exhibition exchange for MSU fine art students. The exhibit, titled “Exchange,” is a collaboration between the MSU Bachelor of Fine Art seniors and the Bachelor of Fine Art seniors from Loyola University, New Orleans. This is a unique opportunity for the graduating seniors to experience an exhibition exchange and have their art receive exposure in a major urban area, rooted in arts and cultural activities.

After he saw samples of MSU student work online, Loyola professor Mark Grote contacted the MSU Gallery Director Lori Neuenfeldt to explore the possibility of a summer exchange exhibit featuring graduating senior works.

Works from the MSU BFA graduating class in three concentrations – fine art, photography and graphic design – will travel to New Orleans and be on display in the Collins C. Diboll Art Gallery, Loyola University New Orleans from mid-May through September of this year. Around the same time, senior works from Loyola’s BFA program will travel and be on display at MSU in the Cullis Wade Depot Art Gallery on the second floor of the MSU Welcome Center, next to Barnes and Noble Bookstore on campus.

The Cullis Wade Depot Art Gallery is open special hours this summer starting in May: Monday–Friday 1–5 p.m. and by appointment. For information call the Department of Art at 662-325-2970 or email Lori Neuenfeldt, gallery director, lneuenfeldt@caad.msstate.edu.
