Visual Arts Senior Exhibitions

Visual Arts Senior Exhibitions

Exhibit your work in the heart of the arts capital of the world! During the spring semester, our galleries at Fordham are dedicated to solo and two-person senior exhibitions. With the guidance of a faculty advisor, you’ll learn how to plan your show, install your work, compose your artist statement, create signage and postcards, and document your exhibition.

The Senior Exhibition receptions are bustling events that celebrate the culmination of all your hard work!

Junior Review and Senior Seminar

If you would like to have a senior exhibition, you should submit a portfolio to Junior Review in April of your junior year. Students who pass Junior Review are admitted to Senior Seminar (VART 4600), an intensive critique-based course in which seniors in any concentrations develop their thesis projects. The course culminates in a group exhibition of student work in Fordham’s Lipani Gallery. The Senior Review, held in December, is used to award the solo and two-person spring exhibitions.

Students who do not qualify for admission to Senior Seminar may, with instructor and departmental approval, still complete a senior thesis and/or a portfolio upon submission of work to the Senior Review. Contact Casey Ruble for more information on Junior Review, Senior Review, or the Senior Seminar.
