Glass Graduate Biennial

Opens April 17

Graduate students value the opportunity to both exhibit their work and help program the gallery space with an ongoing series of well-conceived group and departmental exhibitions. The learning experience afforded by preparing for and mounting exhibitions is especially important to furthering the professional practices of master’s degree candidates.

Inviting space for sharing new work

Ever-changing exhibitions throughout the academic year are generally on view for two to three weeks and are organized by curators from Campus Exhibitions working in conjunction with representatives from the Student Gallery Board. While many shows are departmentally based, others are organized thematically or driven by questions and concerns of particular interest to students.
