Alessia Zanin-Yost, chair of the Arts in the Library Committee, hangs a free exhibit of artwork by WCU art education students that is now on display in Hunter Library.

Artwork by students in Western Carolina University’s art education program is on display through July on the main floor of Hunter Library on the WCU campus. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

Seven students are participating in the Hunter Library exhibit. WCU’s School of Art and Design offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees in art education. The art education program’s philosophy is that to teach well, teachers must experience a wide range of art. Students take courses in studio art, education and art history, and participate in internships with regional arts organizations and museums.

The exhibit is sponsored by Hunter Library’s Arts in the Library Committee. For more details about Western’s art education program, contact Erin Tapley, associate professor of art education, at etapley@wcu.edu.
