NU Student Culture Expo: Students present one-night exhibit at Castellani Art Museumby jmaloni
The Castellani Art Museum at Niagara University will hold its second annual "NU Student Culture Expo" with exhibitions of student work this November. The event is set for Nov. 29, from 7 until 9 p.m. Last year's event was so successful that the museum welcomed the chance to host another evening for Niagara University students to display and view one another's work.
The "NU Student Culture Expo" is free to all Niagara University students and the community. Organizers hope to attract an audience including those who exhibit as well as those who come to view - and perhaps purchase - the work. There will be light refreshments offered, as well as door prizes available for all those who attend. The event also will include live music and artist talks.
The first "NU Student Culture Expo" featured the artwork of 19 students, and attracted a crowd of more than 130 people. Works exhibited included paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, poetry and installation.
The "NU Student Culture Expo" is coordinated by NU senior Laura J. Brownlie.
"As an opportunity for the Niagara University community to become acquainted with the various talented students, this event will also get students involved with the exceptional on-campus resource that we are lucky to have: the Castellani Art Museum," she said.
The Castellani Art Museum was founded by Armand and Eleanor Castellani as a resource for both the students and surrounding community of Niagara University. It is free to all of those who visit it. The Castellani Art Museum is the only collecting museum in Niagara County.
