Student Exhibitions On Campus, In the Community

Student Exhibitions On Campus, In the Community

Posted: April 10, 2013

In Gerald Mead’s DES 414 Senior Seminar, design students gain first-hand experience in all the facets of being a working artist.

A successful artist must balance the roles of event-planner, promoter, and curator. Moreover, artists have to prepare and maintain a portfolio, market their work for representation and sale, seek and apply for exhibitions, and hone their resume-writing and interview skills.

This is all in addition to spending countless hours in a studio, creating and refining their work. 

As a requirement of the course, each student must have a solo exhibition. Whether the exhibition is on or off campus, the students are responsible for securing the location, creating and distributing invitations, promoting their show, hanging and installing their artwork, and connecting with their audience.

Independently orchestrating a show gives students practical experience that they will be able to apply to their future careers.
