The 36th Annual Juried Student Exhibition is a long running tradition at Art Museum of the University of Memphis in collaboration with the Art Department of the University of Memphis. Each year we bring in a prestigious juror to impartially select the work of presently enrolled graduate and undergraduate students. The juror also assigns awards.
