A shot of the current studio art majors after discussions with international artist Dr. Peju Layiwola. Upper level students in the Art department benefit from individual studio visits with artists visiting Millsaps. This helps students further develop their work with extra feedback from professionals outside the faculty.

This fall, current juniors also put together a pop up show at Float Jxn in Midtown, a burgeoning arts community on the west side of Millsaps campus. The show, entitled Piece by Piece, was part of a collaborative assignment in the junior seminar. Every year juniors are required to find a space in Jackson to install their work, advertise, and organize a reception.
