Student Exhibitions On Campus, In the Community

Student Exhibitions On Campus, In the Community

Posted: November 8, 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 in project management that they will be able to apply to their future careers.

“Each of the students’ thesis exhibitions marks the culmination of their studies at the college and is an opportunity for them to simultaneously showcase their talents and celebrate their achievements in their field," said Mead. "I continue to be impressed by the originality and quality of the work they create for their exhibitions and the professionalism of the accompanying promotional materials.”
