For the past year, the students have worked with Jeana Eve Klein, associate professor in the Department of Art. “The students participating in the exhibition selected an appropriate title for their show,” Klein said. “This group has boundless energy, boundless enthusiasm, boundless potential and boundless materials through which they communicate their conceptual ideas. They have worked incredibly hard over the last year, and it is exciting and gratifying to see the results of that hard work come to fruition in this exhibition.”
