Each year Southeast Missouri State University’s Art Department holds a Student Showcase. Regional guest artists are selected by Southeast faculty to jury the show.

This year’s juror is Alex Lopez, Assistant Professor of Sculpture at SIU Carbondale.

Southeast art professor Emily Denlinger says she chose Lopez because his work sets a good model for students.

"In the Digital Arts program we are interested in the cross pollination of multiple media, and how student can incorporate digital technologies with the more traditional media they are using, such as printmaking and ceramics," Denlinger says. "I believe bringing Alex Lopez to SEMO sets a tone for the students and expands their ideas about the possibilities of art."

As a benefit to the juror, he or she is allowed to display personal work in the River Campus Gallery prior to the Student Show. Lopez’s installation is titled “Indelible History of Things Past, Present, and Future”. The show runs from February 28th to March 23rd.
