Magic City Art Connection’s exhibition of University Art Professors will showcase artists who are building stellar careers through solo, invitational, group, and juried exhibitions on both a regional and national level. We want to draw attention to these accomplishments and to their place as influential artists and teachers creating a solid arts legacy for this community. This year, the exhibition is focusing on professors from the The University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, and Birmingham Southern College.
