During the Spring ’17 semester, Studio Art classes in all media are sharing a department-
wide project exploring the concept and tradition of the bestiary. At the end of the
semester, student works that excel will be selected by faculty and displayed in the Schick
Gallery. During the Academic Festival, students with pieces in the gallery will speak
about how they developed their work from initial idea to completion, and the problems
and successes they encountered.
