November 11, 2022–December 10, 2022
ART OUT celebrates the creative talent of RIT students from across the College of Art and Design and beyond. A call for entries is opened to any currently enrolled RIT student, as well as any student who graduated in May 2022. Entries are selected by an invited juror.
For viewers, ART OUT offers a small glimpse of the diverse talent in our student population. Because the exhibition has an open theme, viewers are able to sample a wide range of content, mediums and disciplines from both graduate and undergraduate students who are active in studio art, design, film and animation, illustration, photography and more. For students, ART OUT is a chance to have their work seen by a curator or arts professional working in the field. Juried exhibitions are important for students advancing in their study, as they become a regular process for an artist advancing in their career.

Statement from the juror:
"The selection process for jurying the works at ART OUT was incredibly difficult due to the wide range of mediums. I started the process by viewing the works in one sweep and starring the ones I had a gut reaction to. Recently I’ve been trying to remove my curator brain and trying to tap into the mode of art appreciator and what pleases and/or brings joy to me.
Many of the things I am attracted to in art deal with nature or things that evoke an emotional response. Moments of stillness, silliness, or softness are also things I am drawn to. I also tried to take into consideration the wide range of mediums submitted and I wanted to try and exhibit as many different art forms as possible. Normally, when curating shows at the Yards, many pieces are 2D or a specific format. It was thrilling to see such a variety of mediums and artistic approaches."
