Ursinus Students

The Berman Museum of Art provides Ursinus students with several opportunities to learn about art and museum work. Students can take on an active role at the museum through employment, coursework, and events.

Annual Student Exhibition

Every spring semester, the Berman Museum of Art celebrates the achievements of Ursinus College’s student artists through the Annual Student Exhibition. The exhibition showcases the work of Ursinus art majors and minors from disciplines including painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, installation, mixed media, and photography.

The museum publishes a catalog with excerpts from the artists and professional photography of their work to accompany the exhibition.


The Berman Museum of Art hosts several events a semester to support the arts on campus. Art-making events like screen-printing and pumpkin painting are casual ways for Ursinus students to decompress. Artist-led workshops and speaker series are open to the public as well as Ursinus students. They aim to help participants learn more about art and develop a deeper understanding of the museum’s current exhibitions.

Student organizations are welcome to use the Berman as a venue for meetings, events, or performances. Student leaders or their faculty advisors should complete the form below to request event space.
