Art Exhibits

December 3- 8

We will be hosting exhibits for the thesis of two Cal State Fullerton Master of Fine Arts students:

Chen Liu

Chen Liu is a Graphic and Interactive Design major. His project, “Design comes from Life,” takes inspiration from the world around him. Chen hopes that people find relief from stress by viewing his work.

Leonardo Contreras

Leonardo Contreras will be exhibiting an art sculpture project. He is excited to be presenting his work in an unconventional way at the Arboretum, surrounded by nature. After completing the Masters in Fine Arts program, Leonardo hopes to teach sculpting classes full-time.

Visit the Nature Center and Wisteria Arbor daily from December 3rd-December 8th to meet the artists and view their exhibits!
