The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), one of the nation’s leading art and design schools, announces the opening of its annual Spring Undergraduate Exhibition on Saturday, March 15 at the school’s Sullivan Galleries, located at 33 South State Street.
More than 250 SAIC students completing undergraduate degrees this spring will showcase their work from various disciplines, including sculpture, photography, architecture and design, film, and painting. The students are influenced by SAIC’s interdisciplinary approach of challenging assumptions through a range of theory and skill-based coursework.
“SAIC is proud to host the Spring Undergraduate Exhibition, which is, for our students, the culmination of countless hours of study, production, and research with the purpose of creating and shaping their own footprints within their chosen fields of work,” said Tiffany Holmes, Dean of Undergraduate Studies at SAIC. “The exhibited work represents each emerging artist’s self-directed curriculum which emphasizes critical thinking, rigorous investigation and playful creativity.”
The exhibit runs from March 15 through April 2 with the opening reception on March 15 from 12:00–6:00 p.m. For more information, visit saic.edu/exhibitions.
