Fall 2018 Alumni Art Showcase

Seaver College Alumni Relations, Pepperdine University Libraries, and the Crest Associates are hosting the third Pepperdine Alumni Art Showcase in Fall 2018. The exhibit, showcasing Pepperdine alumni artists' best 2D works, will be installed on Pepperdine's Malibu campus in the newly renovated Payson Library and will run approximately 11 weeks, currently scheduled for August 20-November 6, 2018. 

There will be a reception at Waves Weekend, Saturday, October 13, 2018 to connect with fellow alumni artists and to recognize our top submissions.

Thank you to all of our alumni artists who submitted for the showcase! We will be announcing the art selections soon.
