MTSU BFA Candidates to Exhibit Art in April

Each spring semester the Department of Art’s Todd Art Gallery hosts a pair of Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) Candidates’ exhibits. One showcases studio art while the other graphic design. Each exhibition features art majors expected to graduate in May or at the subsequent semester’s end.

MTSU senior Aly Booker's campaign illustration “30 Ways to Be a Pet Peeve: The Cat’s Ultimate Guide to Owner Persuasion” is a Judge's Choice award winner at the recent Nashville Student ADDY Awards, presented by the American Advertising Federation Nashville. Booker, a graphic design major from Morristown, Tennessee, also won Gold ADDY awards for her poster “Poison" and for her book design for “The Silent Type.”
