|The 2008 Best of SUNY Student Art Exhibition is a juried show featuring 62 works selected from more than 200 artistic pieces submitted to the SUNY student art exhibitions at the State University Plaza this past academic year. The works for the Fall and Spring shows were chosen by individual art departments across SUNY’s 64 campuses.
Student artists judged as Best in Show will each receive a $1,000 scholarship. Those winning honorable mentions will each receive a $500 scholarship.
The Best of SUNY Student Art Exhibition is characterized by the range of media used to create the art. The traditional areas of drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, ceramics, and sculpture are enhanced by the addition of digital imaging and mixed media installations. As a result, the viewer is treated to a spectrum of media being studied by art students within SUNY.
The SUNY student art shows began in 2002 with the goal to bring the work of SUNY’s most talented student artists to a wider audience. This mission is greatly extended by returning the Best of SUNY Student Art Exhibition to the New York State Museum for the third year in a row, where it is seen and enjoyed by thousands of visitors.
