Art & Design Special Events
In the FGCU Art & Design Program, we believe in building a strong campus community of faculty, staff and students committed to the arts, while serving our regional communities of art lovers and supporters. Partnerships with local businesses and arts organizations offer opportunities for the display and sale of student and alumni works in art and design. Signature annual events hosted by the Art & Design Program include the Pottery Sale and Empty Bowls Soup Lunch, which raises over $5000.00 each year to address food insecurity in our neighborhood through collaboration with Interfaith Charities of South Lee; and the Fjelstul Artist Lecture Series brings extraordinary artists, art historians, and designers to campus for public talks, artist workshops and in-depth classroom engagement with students. FGCU's new major is Digital Media Design (DMD) will also hold an annual exhibition of the graduating seniors' work.
