Art and Design students to present senior thesis exhibition

The Lamar Department of Art and Design invites you to join them for “Sanity Not Found,” the fall 2022 senior thesis show in which art students fulfill the requirements for their degree by presenting their thesis projects. “Sanity Not Found” will be in exhibition Dec. 2-10 at the Dishman Art Museum.

“Sanity Not Found” features work from ten students: William Balentine, Zion Foster, Darius Goree-Hurtado, Daniel Johnson, Eimy Longoria-Alvardado, Christian Neloms, Kobi Odiakosa, Angel Ponce, Nejon Sturgent and Elizabeth Torres.


“The audience will see a vast array of traditional and digital artworks including drawing, illustration, graphic design, photography and animation,” said Prince Thomas, professor in the department of Art & Design. “The works are based in the student’s area of concentration within the department.”

Thomas added, “The senior students came up with the title for their show. I think it was influenced by their feelings of being overwhelmed in their final semester at Lamar University. Thesis is the capstone course for all our art majors and consists of several components, with the final component being an exhibition of their works in the Dishman Art Museum. They have been working on their thesis the entire semester with a faculty committee that oversees and guides them through the process from initial idea to sketches to fully realized works.”

Admission to the Dishman Art Museum is free of charge and open to the public. Free museum-dedicated parking is available in front of the Dishman Art Museum during museum hours. For more information about “Sanity Not Found” or the Department of Art and Design,
