The 2019 Student Exhibition Series, which is currently on display at the gallery, is a juried show of three outstanding current students (pictured at right) that receive a professional experience in the gallery, the same as any professional visiting artist. In addition to checking out the new displays, which run through April 16, attendees also had an opportunity to meet several BU administrators, faculty and staff and learn about the university’s Professional U program, which connects students with alumni, employers, and opportunities integrating the academic experience with professional experience in “real world” settings.
