The Shelley Peterson Student Art Exhibition showcases work produced by undergraduate students in the Visual Studies programs from the University of Toronto St. George, Scarborough and Mississauga campuses. Held at the University of Toronto Art Centre, the exhibition is curated by Master of Museum Studies candidates from the Faculty of Information, Katie Funfgeld, Ellen Hlozan, Katherine Laite, Nicole Matityahu and Kate Tyka.
Art is a means of understanding the world around us physically, intellectually, and emotionally, as a form of expression and communication. The exhibition reflects the diversity of these perspectives through the artists’ practice and features work that is evocative, thought provoking, and resonates through content, message, and execution.
The exhibition features 36 works by 31 student artists practicing painting, etching, sculpture, photography, installation and sound art. The artists selected are interpreters of contemporary culture and represent the breadth of the Visual Studies programs through the spectrum of media, concepts, and practices explored at the University of Toronto.
This exhibition is hosted by the Office of the Vice-President & Provost with generous support from Manulife Financial and the Valerie Jean Griffiths Student Exhibitions Fund in Memory of William, Elva and Elizabeth.
