Atlantic Center for the Arts 33rd Annual University Student Exhibition



The University Student Exhibition typically runs for seven weeks each summer in ACA’s Pabst Visitor Center & Gallery in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to create a gallery installation this summer. We are however, pleased to present an online video exhibition of the artists and their work. Although we are saddened by the fact that we are unable to provide the physical space this art deserves, we hope that by providing an online presence, we have created new avenues for observation, discovery, exposure and enjoyment.

Through the annual University Student Exhibition, ACA honors the outstanding work being produced by Florida’s state university art students. By identifying and promoting these emerging artists, ACA continues to focus attention on the high level of creative and experimental work being produced statewide at the college level.

The selection process for this exhibition begins from within Florida’s nine major state university art departments. Each art department is asked to nominate up to three full-time, undergraduate, degree-seeking students, working in any medium or style.


Opening Reception: May 13, 2022, 5-7PM
