1st Annual CSU Office of the President Exhibition

1st Annual CSU Office of the President Exhibition on view through November 22, 2023

The Galleries at CSU, in collaboration with the Department of Art and Design, are celebrating a successful launch of the 1st Annual CSU Office of the President Exhibition. This inaugural exhibition, which opened this summer and closes on November 22, 2023, transports student talent from the Arts Campus at Playhouse Square across campus to CSU President Laura Bloomberg’s office.

The artists showcased in this prestigious exhibition are a true reflection of the diverse CSU student body and represent all walks of campus life. You will encounter artwork from first-year students to graduates, homegrown locals to international students, created by student artists of all ages and backgrounds. 

This exhibition is the result of President Bloomberg’s desire to highlight student artwork in her office. It was decided that this would not merely be “art on the walls” but a carefully curated show complete with labels and installed using standard gallery best practices. VIP visitors, administrators, donors, parents, and governmental officials are greeted by this beautiful display of artwork when they come to meet with the President. 

The featured artists for this 1st Annual CSU Office of the President Exhibition are Ruwaidah Barhoum, Fe Beatty, Darci Gumins-Paulett, Frederick King, Prem Kumar Donthula, Garrett Longenecker, Erin McHugh, Taelor Mullins-Ness, Jack Ovalles, Elise Provident, Theodore Scully, Jurnee Weeams, Yan Wang, Gabrielle Wise, and Aminah Wyatt. These students are pursuing CSU degrees in Studio Art, Graphic Design, Art History and even Engineering.

We invite the public and the entire CSU community to visit this remarkable exhibition––by appointment only––and join us in celebrating the exceptional talent of these featured student artists. To make an appointment to view the exhibition, please contact Mandi Apathy at
