"This exhibition reflects our student's high achievements at this
culminating point in their education," said Elizabeth Brown, UCO associate professor of art. 

In addition, during the opening reception, which will be catered and feature live music, one of the student artists will provide drawing materials to the viewers and then video tape what they choose to create with those materials.
