The current exhibition will be displayed in the President's Office for six months, on view for the University, as well as dignitaries and other honored visitors to the University.

"As always, it is a pleasure to present the best work of the previous semester in the Art and Graphic Design Department. The President's Exhibition is especially close to my heart, because the faculty chooses the best work from their classes to enter in the competition; often the students don't even know their work is being considered until they are notified that they have won. It's always good to honor students who excel, and we appreciate the enthusiastic support we have received from Interim President Nizar Hamzeh," Said Professor Sharon Orleans Lawrence, Chair of the Art and Graphic Design Department

The AUK President's Exhibition is an excellent opportunity for students, increasing student pride in execution, rewarding excellent work, and providing a valuable accomplishment on student resumes as they graduate and go from AUK to graduate school or the workplace.
