The Anderson and VCUarts are excited to announce the 2022 VCUarts Undergraduate Juried Exhibition, November 11–December 9, juried by Lauren Haynes (Queens Museum, Queens, NY).

The annual Undergraduate Juried Exhibition is open to undergraduate students from all VCUarts Departments, working in any media or discipline–or combination thereof! This year’s UJE will feature the artworks of 36 students that thoughtfully engage important aesthetic, social, formal and critical issues in their practice.
