Board of Regents Highlights FVSU Art

The Georgia Board of Regents featured Fort Valley State University's best fine art students' artwork.  

Still portraits, abstracts and paintings by commercial design students are now on display at the Board of Regents Black History Month Exhibit that will be on display through March 17.

A FVSU news release says that in order to participate in the competition, students submitted a portfolio to FVSU’s fine arts department. A faculty panel then selected 12 pieces.

For more information about the exhibit or FVSU’s commercial design program, call Dickey at (478) 825-6387.
