ASM and Kent State University Art Show

About the Show

This is the second year that ASM International has sponsored an art show featuring undergraduate and graduate students from Kent State University.The show offers ASM an opportunity to support KSU students by showing their work at their world headquarters and awarding students an $100 honorarium for each work accepted. The program also benefits ASM International in providing exemplary artwork to compliment their recently renovated interior. ASM was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009. This year, Kent State graduate student Kathryn Shinko was selected to coordinate and curate the show.
