Starting May 3, the public will have the opportunity to view Webster University student artwork in the Kooyumjian Gallery. Blueprints: 2024 Senior Exhibit will run in Webster University’s Kooyumjian Gallery May 3 – July 12, illustrating the undergraduate experiences of several students. 
The pieces in this annual senior display come from graduating seniors across campus in the School of Communications, Leigh Gerdine College of Fine Arts and George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology
Blueprints: 2024 Senior Exhibit depicts how the near graduates use visual language while exploring their creative identity and self-expression. Viewers are invited to step into a fragment of their journey through alluring visuals, critical narratives and intimate explorations of their world. 
Kaitlin Dyan Janeczko, a graduating senior featured in the exhibition, provided a bit of insight regarding her artwork. 
“This collection of photos displays the passion I have for nature photography. I wanted to display how vast and beautiful the world is in these images. I use photography to capture all the places I have experienced in a digital scrapbook. My hope is that others can experience these places, as well, through my photographs."
