Creating Lasting Connections With Local Business
The Honors College partnered with local commercial real estate developer Van Metre to expand the opportunities for Mason students interested in the arts.
The Mason Van Art program allows Mason students to showcase their original art on the walls of Van Metre buildings. Twice a year, Van Metre opens their buildings to the public so students can present and sell their artwork. This program gives students an introduction into the commercial side of art production and opens up networking opportunities throughout the region.
Van Metre benefits by having their commercial buildings adorned with quality art pieces, while students further their artistic careers.
