Open Studios

Every semester undergrads and grads host open studios, inviting the campus community to stop in and see work in progress. Open studios are also an great opportunity for first-year students or an undergrads considering changing their major to get a glimpse of what all our studio majors have to offer.

Held in the evening toward the end of the fall semester, students and department representatives who take part in Open Studios set up demonstrations, presentations and studio tours, providing a fun way to connect with upperclassmen, see studio work, and collect swag designed by people in each major. A lively atmosphere prevails, as students host visitors curious about the processes and work that emerge from our studios.
