With the addition of the LeRoy Neiman Center and the removal of the Betty Rymer Gallery there have been many changes to the spaces available to show student work at SAIC over the past year. F Newsmagazine decided to compile a list of all of the current opportunities for student artists to display their work to the SAIC community and beyond.
