Transforming the Environment at Hunter College


Activating the Urban Campus LogoSince 2015, an annual exhibition of visual art by Muse scholars has been held at Hunter College's East 68th Street location. This annual exhibition, Activating the Urban Campus, provides a unique opportunity for artistically talented undergraduate honors students working in a variety of media to showcase their work in surprising and unexpected places throughout campus. From paintings, photographs, murals, drawings and art books to video installations and interactive media, the Muse works on display enliven the campus, adding a new aesthetic dimension to the daily experience of Hunter students and faculty alike.

Sandra Painting MuralWhether painted in a stairwell in Thomas Hunter Hall, placed on the crosswalk between the North and West buildings, showcased in the library, or hung in one of the student lounges, the works on display have transformed the environment at Hunter.

In 2016, the Muse Scholar Program began to print and circulate maps of the exhibition, showing where each student's work can be found around campus. Click here for a PDF of the 2017 Activating the Urban Campus Map.
