Open to students in the Department of Fine Arts and Department of Design, this yearly exhibition showcases Winthrop's brightest talent from areas such as painting, sculpture, jewelry/metals, printmaking, interior design, illustration, photography and graphic design.

This year’s juror is Jennifer Sudul Edwards, curator at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art in Charlotte, North Carolina.
