The College of Education’s Art Extravaganza began in 2004 as an initiative to spotlight the artwork of exceptional P-12 art students in the region, many of whom are taught by Georgia Southern University alumni. The exhibit is on display in the College of Education’s second floor hallway gallery. Each spring, a new exhibit opens and the artwork remains on display for one year. The Art Extravaganza is sponsored by Georgia Southern University, College of Education.
We are currently making plans for the 2019-2020 Art Extravaganza. Please check back frequently for updated information.
On Sunday, March 4, 2018, friends and family gathered to recognize the over 40 artists whose artworks are now on display in the College of Education for the 14th annual Art Extravaganza. This year’s ceremony featured Georgia Southern University art professor John Jensen, MFA. An expert in ceramics and sculpture, Jensen spoke about the importance of art and the necessity of finding a career you can enjoy. He displayed several of his own art pieces and highlighted the joys of serving as a professor of art at Armstrong State University and now Georgia Southern.
