February 06, 2014

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- All degree-seeking graduate students currently enrolled in graduate degree programs at Penn State are invited to present their research and creative work to the public at the 29th annual Graduate Exhibition on April 4 and 6.

The Graduate Exhibition provides an opportunity for students to convey to a broad audience their research projects’ significance to scholars in the field and potential significance to the general public, or in the case of the visual arts, significance of their work as creative research in the visual arts and relevance to contemporary art and visual culture. Students who wish to present their research or visual art may register online until 5 p.m. Monday, Feb 17.

Many students who participated in prior Graduate Exhibitions have said presenting their work to a general audience has been very helpful. One student said, “It is beneficial to look at your research project as ‘the bigger picture’ instead of its tiny focus. In this way you may realize things that have been previously overlooked.” Another student remarked, “It was good to work on presenting my work in a concise and general manner, since I will have to do this in job interviews and networking.”

The Graduate Exhibition includes performances at 7 p.m. Friday, April 4, in the Playhouse Theatre, and research and visual arts presentations on from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, April 6, in the HUB-Robeson Center.

Information on the application process and guidelines for students wishing to enter and details about the 29th annual Graduate Exhibition are available on the Graduate School’s website.
