Hurricane Gustav Alert

Due to the threat posed by Hurricane Gustav to the New Orleans area, the campus of Xavier University is now closed. The campus will reopen on Thursday, September 6. For those students who had yet to pick up their projects from the Art Village, please know that we have moved your artwork to a secure location. You may retrieve your work once campus has reopened. In the unfortunate event of an extended evacuation like the one following Katrina, we will make alternative arrangements to get your artwork to you.
