48th Annual Student Art Exhibition

Awards Ceremony: 6-7:30pm
Cal State San Bernardino’s 48th Annual Student Art Exhibition will feature artwork from the next generation of emerging Inland Empire artists. Original CSUSB student artwork will be on display at the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art (RAFFMA) from June 18 – July 31, 2018. An awards ceremony will be held on Friday, June 15 from 6-7:30 p.m. followed by a public reception from 7:30-9:30 p.m.
Art students have been hard at work all year preparing for the highly competitive exhibition, which boasts an average 30% acceptance rate. The exhibition, a collaboration between RAFFMA and the department of Art, demonstrates the department’s focus on developing emerging artists and designers who are professional, technically skilled, conceptually astute and innovative. RAFFMA’s galleries will be filled with a variety of media, subjects, approaches and styles that express a wide range of ideas about traditional and contemporary art.
