**East Ten­nessee State Uni­ver­si­ty (top floor) **
The Graph­ic Design area of the Depart­ment of Art and Design at East Ten­nessee State Uni­ver­si­ty is hap­py to present sam­ples of work pro­duced by stu­dent artists in a vari­ety of dif­fer­ent media. Many of the works exhib­it­ed are graph­ic works, pro­duced in response to spe­cif­ic visu­al design prob­lems, while oth­ers are more indi­vid­u­al­ized state­ments. Some work is pro­duced with dig­i­tal process­es, while oth­ers use tra­di­tion­al meth­ods. This exhib­it rep­re­sents only a very small sam­ple of our larg­er art and design pro­gram.

Our home gallery, The ETSU 2nd Life Vir­tu­al Art Gallery, is super­vised by Pro­fes­sor Bim­boga­mi, a pro­fes­sor of graph­ic design, and is used as both an exhib­it space and as a learn­ing studio/laboratory for the arts.

Our gallery mis­sion is to explore the poten­tial for cre­at­ing and exhibit­ing art and design and to pro­vide a rich visu­al expe­ri­ence for all vis­i­tors.

ETSU DEPT. OF ART
The Depart­ment of Art & Design is accred­it­ed by NASAD and offers degree pro­grams in a wide vari­ety of areas of empha­sis includ­ing: art his­to­ry, graph­ic design, pho­tog­ra­phy, print­mak­ing, draw­ing, paint­ing, fiber arts, jew­el­ry and met­als, sculp­ture, and ceram­ics.

**Uni­ver­si­ty of Ken­tucky (ground floor)**

http://www.uky.edu/FineArts/Art/
The Uni­ver­si­ty of Ken­tucky Depart­ment of Art has an excit­ing gallery in SL with chang­ing exhibits. The cura­tor is New Media pro­fes­sor Dmit­ry “Dima” Strakovsky.

The near­ly 300 under­grad­u­ate majors and 30 grad­u­ate stu­dents in the Depart­ment of Art seek degrees in Art Stu­dio, Art His­to­ry, and Art Edu­ca­tion. They are taught by 21 full-time fac­ul­ty, who are rec­og­nized nation­al­ly and inter­na­tion­al­ly for their high lev­el of research and cre­ative activ­i­ty. Large enough to present a diver­si­ty of cre­ative expe­ri­ences yet small enough to offer per­son­al atten­tion to indi­vid­u­als, our depart­ment offers the only ter­mi­nal pro­fes­sion­al degree in Stu­dio Art, the M.F.A, in the Com­mon­wealth.

Over the years we have devel­oped a rep­u­ta­tion as the lead­ing cen­ter for the pro­duc­tion and exhi­bi­tion of cut­ting-edge art of the high­est qual­i­ty in Lex­ing­ton and Cen­tral Ken­tucky and as a nation­al leader in new approach­es to the cre­ation and inter­pre­ta­tion of art, edu­cat­ing artists, teach­ers, and future lead­ers in the cul­tur­al life of the Com­mon­wealth.
