Upcoming Events


Photo/Video BFA Show

May 31st - June 14th: On View

“After All, I Exist” is an opportunity to share our work with each other and the world— to celebrate our accomplishments, hurdles overcome, times ending, and doors opening. Our work serves as a testament to persistence in the face of struggle, both internal and external. Across our artistic practices, there are themes of introspection, experimentation, and radical visibility. We invite you to witness our collective experiences and to watch us unfold into the world.

Studio Art BFA Show

May 31st - June 14th: On View

A mixture of figurative, surreal, confrontational, theatrical, and captivating art come together to form this year’s BFA exhibition: “Safety in the Hot Shop.” The long-awaited culmination of a thousand late nights, fiery dialogue, and the simmering heat of our collective vision, “Safety in the Hot Shop” reflects on our journey throughout this program. These bodies of work are the results of exploring boundaries, breaking rules, and creating new ones. Visitors are advised to suit up, follow all safety protocols, and see what we have been forging in the Art and Design Hot Shop.
