PAST EVENTS

Art Prof 2020 Graduation: A Global Exhibition for Art & Design Students

The spring season is usually marked by important experiences such as final exhibitions, commencement, and more. However, due to the global pandemic this spring 2020, graduating students are feeling the loss of these rites of passage this spring. Many schools have either postponed or cancelled senior exhibitions.  This loss to graduating students is tremendous.

The Art Prof 2020 Graduation was a live stream which featured artwork by graduating BFA, MFA,  BA or MA in studio art programs from schools all over the world, plus seasoned advice from professional artists, designers, and faculty.
