The Lycoming College Art Gallery and the student-run Lycoming College Downtown Project Space are both located at 25 West Fourth Street in downtown Williamsport. Some exhibitions are housed in both spaces.
The Lycoming College Juried Senior Show is the culmination of the thesis project for all seniors with a major in studio art. All studio art majors are required to produce a cohesive body of professional thesis work, and must be chosen by an outside juror to exhibit in the Senior Show in order to graduate.
“It was amazing to encounter so many talented students in your department! I momentarily wondered if I was at RISD or MICA, two awesome art schools where I have worked with graduate students in the past—I had to remind myself that I was jurying undergraduates at a liberal arts college. Wow! Congratulations to all, both the students and the faculty who have nurtured this astounding creativity! I look forward to seeing more work by all of you.” – Doreen Bolger

SEE ME is a collaborative installation designed by future art educator Holley Fuller, ’18, and coordinated by Andrea McDonough Varner, '03. Andrea is the Art Department Coordinator for the Williamsport Area School District.
In light of recent concern for student safety in schools, this project creates an outlet for public school students to express their thoughts and emotions about these issues, using their preferred medium. The self-portraits in this powerful exhibit encourage viewers to think about the importance of each and every school student by looking directly into their eyes.
See me. You matter. We matter.
