UVA Studio Art majors are selected and supported each year by the Art Department to attend the ArtLab program at Mountain Lake. There is no curriculum or assignments. Students work alongside the other artists, an opportunity that is rare during the school year. Through the creative exchange between artists and the scientists at the Station, students get a sense of what it means to be a professional artist.
Proximity to the scientific work that happens at the Station is another benefit to art students, whose classes at UVA are on the other side of Grounds from most science classes and labs. Casual conversations at meals or in cabins between scientists and art students can spark ideas, or even simply provide the chance to learn about something completely different from the type of work students are doing.
In October the students show their work in the UVA Art Department.
