Kaitlyn Maxwell


Photographs by UCA foundations student Kaitlyn Maxwell are on view at UCA Downtown, selected as part of the “Art and Soul” Exhibition, now through February 25th. Her work is influenced by her personal experiences of fear and stress brought on by reports of African American deaths in the news, “I live in constant fear that one of my loved ones will be on the news next.” Maxwell intends to apply to the BFA program with a photography emphasis.

A select group of foundation students are participating in the “Trashion Show;” a fashion show with garments and accessories created with repurposed/recycled materials. The event is organized by Arkansas Students for the Arts and will take place in the Ida Waldran Auditorium on the UCA campus from 5-9pm on April 21st.

Work from all of the 2021-22 Foundations cohort will be on view this summer in the Baum Gallery. The exhibition will feature a wide variety of works exploring the theme of identity. This capstone project represents the culmination of the 1st year art and design department experience.
