Drop Off and Pick Up Information for Student Work:
• Students are allowed to exhibit one piece of work from each of their courses during this academic year. This work must be clearly labeled with their name and the course.
• Students are responsible for delivering their work to the Collections Gallery, just left of the main entrance to the School of Art Gallery on Friday, February 5 from 10-4pm only. If you cannot bring your work yourself, please send it with a friend.
• The removal of all work, beginning at 5pm and ending at 8pm on Sunday, is essential as classes take place at 8:30 Monday morning. If you cannot pick up your work, please write a note giving a friend or family member permission to do so on your behalf.
• If any work is deemed unsafe to be exhibited, the student will be told so when it is dropped off.
• If there are specific requirements for installation, students must speak to Jamie Wright prior to dropping off their work to make sure that there is adequate space.
• It should be noted that some works might not be able to be exhibited if they are unsafe or if there is not a proper area of ARTlab that can accommodate them for a variety of reasons.
