8 Fluid Ounces is one of the most popular and enthusiastically anticipated exhibitions at the LSU School of Art Glassell Gallery.

Each artist created a set of cups and a vessel.
Participating artists include: Adam Greutzmacher, Beth Lo, Birdie Boone, Brett Freundly, Brian Jones, Darcy Chenoweth, Holly Walker, Kat and Roger, Klai Brown, Kyla Twomey, Lauren Gallaspy, Matt Kelleher, Matthew Levi Jorgenson, Mike Helke, Sanam Emami, Shoko Teruyama, Susan Dewsnap, and, of course, Horie.
