Rector Prof. Dr. Tarık Yarılgaç stated in the opening speech of the exhibition that: “It is seen that the universities whose names are prominent in the world are strong in social areas besides their scientific studies. In this context, our University is prominent with its academic and scientific studies; cultural and artistic areas or projects that are hosted by the artist. In this framework, we are aware of the value of artistic works, the need for labour, and the emergence of such works as a long process. Within the scope of these studies carried out in the field of art, it is important for our academicians to develop the skills of the students, to encourage them and direct them, and to prepare the basis for the creation of original works.”
Rector Yarılgaç said that the Faculty of Fine Arts, which is continuing its education with active 4 departments, will play a leading role in the field of art education with its rapid development among the fine arts faculties opened in the region. “The sculpture department, which was opened in our faculty, is one of the 16 sculpture departments that provide active education in state and foundation universities, as well as the first sculpture department opened in the Black Sea Region at the same time. The fact that one of the sculpture departments which are rare in the country is opened at our university is the best example of aiming to have a say in the region in the field of science and art education of our university. The first graduates of the Ordu University Sculpture Department, our eight young sculptor candidates will meet art lovers with a graduation exhibit consisting of 56 works. I congratulate our young people for presenting their works to our taste and I wish them to succeed in their professional lives with the belief that they will represent Ordu University in the best possible way.”
