  • Presenters should arrive at their presentation room 30 minutes prior to the start of their session (not their individual talk) to receive further instruction from the panel moderator.

Visual Art Exhibition

A visual art display consists of an artist's work being displayed throughout an entire day of the TTU Undergraduate Research Conference. Visual art is displayed in a room that is constantly monitored to ensure the safety of the work. Artists can be present in the room to answer questions throughout the day if they wish. Artists are also encouraged to present in the oral presentation format if they would like to give a more formal presentation regarding their work. Presentation in the oral format does not effect your eligibility to display your art.
