BFA Exhibition 2021

2021 BFA Exhibition

The School of Art is proud to present the 2021 Bachelor of Fine Arts Exhibition. The show takes place annually each spring semester to highlight the work of our studio and AVCE undergraduates.

Students were encouraged to submit a fully realized artist statement or design philosophy along with 6 works that display the professional skills developed throughout their course of study.

Our distinguished faculty juried each application and selected the art that highlights our students’ highest achievements from their degree pursuits. This year’s exhibition will include work selected from over 50 students in Illustration + Design, 2D, Photo, Video and Imaging (PVI), 3D Extended Media and our Art and Visual Culture Education students.

Message from the Co-Curator:

The Bachelor of Fine Arts Show is a culmination in many ways and, in others, just a metaphorical dip of the toes into art-making and meaning-making through art. The work of the students presented in this show runs the gambit of expression and story-telling. Curating these snapshots, working through them, and allowing them to tell their stories was a pleasure and a gift for myself, Amber Coleman (Ph.D. Art and Visual Culture Education), Olivia Richardson (MFA Printmaking), and Tehan Ketema (MFA Photography Video and Imaging). Galleries 1-3, “Bodily Suspense,” “Fractured Spaces,” and “A Critical Aspect” represent our collective response and our attempt at finding connections across an assortment of disciplines. We hope you enjoy!

There are several ways to engage with the exhibition. You can look through the works in each of our curated galleries, which have been carefully selected by our curator and assistant curator to provide a more layered experience that aligns with what would occur in a physical space.

The works are also grouped into the programs students are pursuing for their degrees. Lastly, you can find the student in our artist list which will take you to their individual artist statement and a list of their works.
