The 118th Annual Student Exhibition (ASE) features works by third and fourth-year undergraduate students and second-year students in the graduate MFA program.

The ASE is a long-standing PAFA tradition allowing students the opportunity to curate, install, and sell their own works in the galleries of our museum.

In addition to serving as an exhibition and art sale, the ASE includes a competition for the coveted Cresson, Schiedt, Von Hess, Ware, and Women’s Board travel scholarships.
