The Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts hosts The Friends of Chautauqua Show that includes artwork created by friends, colleagues and former classmates of School of Art graduate artists. Nic Wiesinger, ASU Chautauqua Student Art Organization founder, feels that the exhibition highlights the indelible connection that School of Art graduates have to the larger national art scene.

The exhibition introduces the greater Phoenix area to new and upcoming works by artists from around the country. The showcase emphasizes the diverse range of art influences within the graduate body and includes paintings, drawings, sculpture, metals, wood, video, photography and conceptual installation.
