Get Your Art Fix: Student Work Highlighted

Jesse Seo, Contributing Writer




Cal State LA’s College of Arts and Letters showcased photos, sculptures, paintings, fashion designs and other student work in a gallery in the Fine Arts building.


The exhibit brought in crowds of people: Some were relatives of students with art work displayed while others were faculty, staff and students on lunch breaks or between classes.


Some students said they left the gallery feeling inspired by their classmates, and may produce artwork or take a course to wet their appetite for creativity.


Those who participated in the exhibit were proud to see the results of the time, effort, and energy they put into the work.


In case you missed the exhibit, the UT has your back with a virtual tour.
