Florissant Valley’s Arts & Humanities department will host Portfolio Day on Monday, Oct. 28.

The art extravaganza will take place 8 a.m.-5 p.m. in the Humanities Building on campus, 3400 Pershall Road. The event is free and open to the public.

Approximately 32 students will have stations set up throughout the building showcasing their artwork. Some of the works include photography, graphic design, mixed media, drawing, printmaking and painting.

Portfolio Day, which has become a tradition at STLCC-Florissant Valley, is a great opportunity for second-year art students to learn about transfer opportunities and to get feedback on their current work. Art institutions and universities from across the country send representatives who review students’ work for transfer and scholarships.

“Last year, 85 percent of our students were accepted for admission on the spot, and several were offered scholarships,” said Janice Nesser-Chu, chair of the Arts & Humanities department at Florissant Valley. “This year, there will be 20 representatives from prestigious art and design schools, including the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Columbia College Chicago, Corcoran College of Art & Design and Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art.”

The representatives will review students' portfolios and give presentations on their institutions. Presentations by the representatives will take place throughout the day in Room 112 in the Humanities building.

“Our annual Portfolio Day is truly a celebration,” Nesser-Chu said.
