The Harvard Student Art Show is an independent student-run event held each spring, which displays and sells the artwork of students from Harvard College and the Harvard graduate schools. The purpose of the show is to expose the Harvard community to art on campus and to provide a public venue for student-artists to showcase their work. As we are looking to recruit students with diverse interests and concentrations to organize and execute this event, many positions do not require previous art or art historical knowledge.
