Fordham University seniors majoring in visual arts will be on center stage this semester.
Biweekly exhibits featuring work for their senior theses are on display shows now through May 16. The exhibits are featured at the Center and Pushpin Galleries in Lowenstein Center on Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus.
“Students are responsible for everything from coming up with an initial thesis idea, making the body of work that explores that thesis, writing the artist statement that explains the thesis, installing the work in the gallery, designing the postcard invitations for the show and having them printed, organizing the reception for the show, and finally documenting and taking down the show,” said Casey Ruble, artist-in-residence and gallery coordinator. “The opportunity to have a solo or two-person show in a gallery space in the heart of New York City, the art capital of the world, is quite rare, especially for undergraduate students.”
