Here are The 56th Annual Student Exhibition Winners

Over 60 pieces of art adorned the walls of Philip J. Steele Gallery for the 56th Annual Student Exhibition opening reception on March 8, 2019. The time-honored tradition brings students, faculty, staff and community members together each year to celebrate the hard work of on ground and online students alike. The exhibition also serves as a juried competition in which pieces are judged in categories against other work of the same discipline.

The exhibition will be on display through March 29, if you’re able to visit RMCAD’s campus. In the meantime, check out some highlights from the show in the gallery below, as well as the full list of this year’s award winners.
