Students in the Art and Design Department at Missouri Southern State University will have the opportunity to have their work reviewed by professionals during the 2022 Portfolio Review. 

The event will be held from noon to 5 p.m. Friday, April 22, in Billingsly Student Center’s Connor Ballroom.

“The Portfolio Review is an opportunity for our students to meet with professional designers and discuss their work,” said Ed Outhouse, associate professor of design. “This is our first in-person portfolio event since 2019, and I’m excited for our art and design students to showcase their creative work in a public setting. It’s the type of experience we can’t replicate in the classroom.” 

Participating students’ work will be on display during the event.

Olivia Martin, a senior bachelor of fine arts-design major, said she was looking forward to having her artwork reviewed. 

“I’m really excited for the opportunity to display and talk about my work with professionals from our community,” she said. 

The 2022 Portfolio Review is free and open to the public.
