Museum Studies: Talented visual artists from UofT’s 3 campuses

Submitted on Monday, July 12, 2021

The annual Shelley Peterson Student Art Exhibition – curated by Museum Studies students Jaime Meier, Delaney Sweep, and Erika Serodio in partnership with the Art Museum, celebrates the artistic excellence of undergraduate students enrolled in visual studies programs across the University of Toronto’s three campuses.

The emerging artists featured in the exhibition explore themes related to the repetition of daily rituals, memories of home and family, sexuality and gender norms, and the spirit of renewal brought forth by the natural world.
