Annual Student Juried Exhibitions

Best of Ringling is an annual juried student exhibition. Each spring, Ringling College celebrates the top art and design work created by students that academic year. Students are recognized during an opening reception and the award-winning work remains on display in galleries across campus for several weeks.

The work is judged by more than a dozen well-known and respected professionals in their fields who participate in the vetting, selection, and awards process. Jurors also provide the criteria for selection and offer comment and critique for the students. In addition to the juried selections, some majors offer faculty and department awards. The President’s Award is awarded to one student from each major.

While the opening reception is an invite-only event, community members are encouraged to visit campus galleries to see the work.
