After that, Dr. Irene Kanyady, Assistant Professor, greeted the audience with the opening of the Fine Arts Department’s exhibition, which could be viewed in the foyer of the new building. “This is the moment when we face the fact that these great entities such as art, research, science, experimentation and education meet during this period and crystallize in students’ work. (…) Looking at the works, we realize that the common ground between them is creativity, innovation, constant experimentation and curiosity. ” – Tell. He said about the works presented at the exhibition, the students created different genres. We can find works in both the independent and applied arts, and there are experimental drawings paired with photography capabilities, imaginative illustrations, and product packaging. The target audience for the works also ranges from a rich palette, from children to adults, and anyone can view and even experiment with your interactive creations. Anyone who does not have the opportunity to personally view the exhibition can view it from the registry.
Dr. Edt Dibrenti, Scientific Director, also gave a short speech in which he mentioned Umberto Eco’s ideas on writing the thesis, with the well-known author also addressing the topic in a volume. “According to him, writing a thesis means learning how to organize your thoughts and organize data. He gains experience in systematic work, that is, he creates something that is fundamentally for the benefit of others. It is not the topic that matters, but the experience gained from the work.” He said. The director was pleased to see how many people had pledged to write the letter and the contest, and added that he was sure that the hard work would be fruitful.
Soon after the speeches, the performances began.
