From a press release:

This week, the Art Department at Marywood University in Scranton presented its 2020 Senior Exhibits featuring art therapy, painting, graphic design, illustration, photography, and art education through its online catalog.

Turning to the potential of offering the exhibits online, senior undergraduate and graduate art students knew that while in-person exhibits are not possible at this time due to the coronavirus pandemic, art and culture does not stop. Participation in the online catalog also fulfills the professional contribution requirements for the graduating bachelor of arts, bachelor of fine arts, and master of arts students. Furthermore, the artwork presented within the online catalog stands as a testament to the resilience, fortitude, and creativity of Marywood art students in the Class of 2020.

The 2020 Senior Exhibition Catalog can be accessed at, with separate galleries for BA art therapy and art education, BFA graphic design, MA photography, and BFA illustration, photography, and painting.

Marywood University’s Art Department helps students attain full development as creative persons through the integration of art studies with the total concept of a liberal arts education. Marywood art students are involved intensely in self-discovery, self-evaluation, artistic research, and professional presentation of products. As a result, these students develop a sense of responsibility, empathy, and professionalism, which then is reflected, upon graduation, by commitment and involvement as a professional in the larger community. It is this growing sense of responsibility for quality communication, balanced with creativity, that will enrich future generations.

Marywood University (2300 Adams Ave., Scranton) prepares students to have a positive impact on society at regional and global levels while providing each student with the foundation for success in an interdependent world. Founded in 1915 by the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the university serves men and women from a variety of backgrounds and religions.

The university enrolls more than 3,000 students in an array of undergraduate and graduate programs. Committed to enriching human lives, Marywood provides a framework for educational excellence that enables students to develop fully as persons and to master professional and leadership skills necessary for meeting human needs.
