Pieces by a total of 36 seniors ranging from Ceramics, Fibers and Glass to Metal/Jewelry and Wood were displayed at NEXUS.

Students who study Crafts at UArts today become craft artists within the context of a broader knowledge and experience. The Crafts program seeks to develop artists of originality and resourcefulness who can excel in the most competitive professional environment.
