Mississippi State junior Daniel J. Mooney of Brookhaven talks about one of his artworks with Student Support Services Coordinator Elizabeth Williams during a “One Night Only” exhibit at the university’s Howell Building.

The show represented a culmination of ACCESS program students’ semester-long artwork created with volunteer guest instructors from the Department of Art and Starkville community. Students completed the work through individual instruction and in Department of Art courses including Rowan Haug’s information on elements of design, 3-D design and acrylic painting. Students drew horses with Assistant Professor Neil Callander’s Drawing II class and made ceramic pieces with the help of Professor Robert Long and his advanced ceramics students.

MSU established the ACCESS program in 2010, becoming the only university in the state to provide post-secondary education opportunities for students with intellectual disabilities. The event also was sponsored by the College of Architecture, Art and Design.
