Work included in the exhibition ranges from print to sculpture, and painting to photography and video. It demonstrates technical and conceptual acuity, as well as marks a transition from experimentation to actualization. Selected by a faculty committee, the exhibition provides a glimpse into the artistic energy found at UT Austin and includes work by students receiving bachelor’s degrees in Studio Art, Visual Art Studies, or Art History.

call to action: 2017

call to action highlights the design skills we have honed the past four years on our path to becoming critical, thoughtful, and expressive designers who aim to leave the world a more ethical place. As designers, we see ourselves as actors of the present, capable of sculpting the future. We believe that design can provoke, advocate, strengthen, reframe, and inform a better society. As we navigate our roles in an ever-changing socio-political context, we share here our thesis design projects to represent our ideas, reflections, and intentions for a future beyond the classroom. We invite our audience to reflect with us, develop their own ideas, and take individual action in a way they see fit.
