Other artworks that are not selected are held for exhibition in the Salon des Refusés in the second and third floor studios of Lortz Hall. Artwork is available for purchase without a commission charge during this event.

Lindsey Sutton ‘16 contributed three pieces of art to the exhibition. “I participated in it because it is a requirement for my art class. I hope at least one gets selected, but I am happy that I submitted them,” said Sutton.

Chritiana Bredbenner ’16 submitted four works. “I took part in the exhibit because I wanted to display my work to the public. I like the fact that my work can be displayed and hopefully enjoyed by others,”

Bredbenner said.
