117th Annual Student Exhibition

Exhibition Info
Samuel M.V. Hamilton Building
PAFA's prestigious annual student show, sale, and scholarship competition.

The 117th Annual Student Exhibition (ASE) will feature works by the school's BFA students, third- and fourth-year undergraduates, and second-year MFA students.

This long-standing PAFA tradition offers students the opportunity to curate, install, and sell their own works in PAFA's museum galleries, and is one of the most celebrated student group shows in the country.

In addition to its role as an exhibition and sale, the ASE includes a competition for the coveted Cresson, Schiedt, Von Hess, Ware, and Women’s Board travel scholarships. It also provides collectors and the general public with opportunities to view and purchase works by PAFA's prize-winning students and rising stars in the art world.
