The work of our graduating BA and BFA students is the culmination of focused query and the fierce
dedication and passion of the talented aspiring visual artists at CSU Stanislaus’ College of the Arts. It
is fertile evidence of the possibilities ahead and as such represents the [new] beginning that is life after graduation.
As meaningful as the student experience can be, these experiences oftentimes pale — appropriately so, to the road ahead, those unknown journeys that we see glimpses of through the work on the gallery walls and on these pages — work that has led each of these students to roads yet traversed. These bright young aspirants, some of whom will choose other paths to explore, are firmly engaged in the dialogue of life as active participants and valued human beings. Contributing beauty, new ways of seeing and a sincere desire to be better than those who have gone before them, they are global citizens forging new paths in transcendent societies.
“Last Call” is the new beginning — one of many to come, celebrated in the work of the talented students in the department of Art’s graduating class of 2011.
