Art students have supplemented classroom and studio learning with experiential education in recent years:

  • Students in the Albright Visual Arts Organization (AVAO) organized workshops with art faculty to construct bones from clay and plaster to be exhibited as part of One Million Bones, a national project calling attention to genocide throughout the world. AVAO’s fabricated bones were displayed at Penn State Berks’s Freyberger Gallery and the Goggleworks Center for the Arts in Reading before making their way to the National Mall in Washington, DC. 
  • Exchanges and exhibitions at the National Small Works Exhibition at Elon College in North Carolina, the Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia, the 6x6x6 exhibit and fundraiser at the Rochester Contemporary Arts Center, and the Troika exchange of small works at Dragon Hall, England

  • Local exhibits at the Goggleworks Center for the Arts, the Abraham Lincoln-A Wyndham Hotel, and the Humane Society of Berks County

  • Internships at the Berks Filmmakers Media Center, the Reading Public Museum and the Goggleworks Center for the Arts

  • Numerous Albright Creative Research Experience (ACRE) projects

  • Community programming for younger audiences through the department’s educational curator, Beth Krumholz
