MGES students meet with university president

Aug. 18, 2017

New students in the Master in Gallery Management & Exhibits Specialization (MGES) program mingled with Western President Greg Salsbury, Ph.D., at a “President’s Coffee” last week.

The new class, which is twice the size of last year’s cohort, gathered in Quigley to socialize amongst themselves as well as with the president and faculty members.

After Salsbury introduced himself and shared a bit of Western history with the group, the new students shared their undergraduate history and what drove them to take on this next academic and artistic challenge. They also discussed what they plan to gain from the MGES program and how they will use those skills moving forward.

Following the roundtable conversation, the president and students toured Quigley Gallery, observing the exhibit by Chase Hutchinson, chairman of the Art Department. The students had installed the exhibit as a practicum experiential learning project.
