University of Maine at Augusta Announces 2023 UMA Architecture Student Show
Opening Reception Monday, November 6, 2023, 12-1 P.M.
Danforth Art Gallery, UMA Augusta Campus
The University of Maine at Augusta (UMA) is proud to present the Architecture Student Show at the Danforth Art Gallery at UMA’s Augusta campus, 46 University Drive, Augusta, Maine, with an opening reception on Monday, November 6, 2023, 12-1 P.M.
The exhibit is “Making is Knowing”, and demonstrates the trajectory of student learning and achievement over their five years of UMA’s Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.) program.
The reception will include refreshments and comments from architecture faculty. This event is free and open to all.
UMA’s B.Arch. program offers the only professional architecture degree in Maine and the only public 5-year professional degree in northern New England. Its mission stresses the small classes, an integrated curriculum, and hands-on learning. The program is fully accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board.
Faculty in the architecture program teach architecture through engagement, educating, and empowering students to explore, investigate, and analyze the built environment. Engagement brings students into active contact with each other, their coursework, and our community partners. Since 2007, students have conducted 36 community-based projects with 22 different community partners. From working with the Augusta-based non-profit Bread of Life Ministries on designing housing for Homeless Veterans, to working with city managers on the master plan of Lewiston’s riverfront, students are exposed to the multiple needs and responsibilities facing today’s architectural designers.
Please join us for the November 6 opening reception of the exhibition.
