UNO Art Students to Showcase Thesis Work Starting April 1
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) Department of Art and Art History is pleased to present the work of 10 Bachelor of Fine Art (BFA) thesis students and 15 seniors in the Bachelor of Arts in Studio Arts (BASA) program in the final exhibitions of the Spring 2012 semester.
The BFA exhibit will be featured in the Weber Fine Arts Building’s (WFAB) Art Gallery, while the BASA work will be featured in the Criss Library Osborne Family Gallery.

BFA students working in glass, photography, ceramics, painting, sculpture and installation explore both the personal and universal in their thesis work. Concepts ranging from the natural world to the world of decay, work inspired by family, narrative, memory or the nature of perception are explored visually.
