2018 Selections from fishladder - A Student Journal of Art and Writing

Russel H. Kirkhof Center Gallery
March 9 – June 22, 2018

Now in its fifteenth year, fishladder is a student-run journal at Grand Valley State University. fishladder publishes fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, drama, photography, and art created by GVSU students. Individuals from across all disciplines in the university are encouraged to submit work in all styles, genres, and forms. The editors of fishladder aim to select the best, most artistic work for publication in the yearly print edition, which is unveiled every April.

This exhibition presents a selection of visual and written works of art from the publication. It is hosted in conjunction with Student Scholars Day (SSD), an event celebrating the scholarly achievements of students from the past year. This year, SSD will be hosted on April 11 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Henry Hall Atrium, Kirkhof Center, and the Mary Idema Pew Library.
