Prior to their Carnegie Hall debut on Easter, the PSU choirs, directed by Professor Dan Perkins, perform Wilberg’s inspiring Requiem. Reviewer Bjarne Christensen says of the work, “This piece is other-worldly. While Wilberg’s sound evokes elements of Vaughan Williams, Brahms, Fauré and Durufle, this work is entirely his and truly original.”

Proceeds from the concert will support the PSU Chamber Singers’ May 2014 performance tour to Chile.

Silver Center for the Arts -  Graphic Design
Karl Drerup Art Gallery - Studio Art

Sponsored by the Karl Drerup Art Gallery


The BFA degrees in studio art and graphic design are intense, highly focused professional programs. Throughout the year, studio art majors delve into personal themes, motifs, and media to achieve a mature body of work, culminating in the selection of work featured in this threshold exhibit at the Karl Drerup Art Gallery. Graphic design majors create and define a fictitious company and spend the year producing a broad range of applications including logos, stationery, advertisements, posters, pamphlets, and publications. These materials are displayed in the Silver Center for the Arts atrium. BFA students in both programs are mentored by selected faculty members, although all faculty participate in critiques and individual dialog with the students throughout the experience.

Reception Tuesday, April 22, 4-6pm
