The exhibition will be on display from July 7 - July 29, 2023.
An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, July 7, 2023, from 6 - 8 p.m. and will be open to the public.
The UNT CoLAB is a multi-functional venue in the heart of downtown Denton. The UNT CoLAB is comprised of a retail boutique featuring unique, artisan and alumni made goods, a gallery space with monthly rotating exhibitions, and an event venue that bridges the campus to the community in meaningful ways. In addition, the UNT CoLAB functions as a Student Learning Lab operated by the College of Merchandising, Hospitality & Tourism.
The UNT Food Pantry presented by Kroger serves UNT students who may be experiencing hunger or food insecurity. The UNT Food Pantry is funded by donations only! Any monetary or food donation helps provide needed resources to UNT students. Students are able to visit free of charge once per week to supply themselves with food and various other items that can help them achieve success in their academic journey at UNT.
