Please Stand By… 2021 Senior Virtual Exhibition Reception

Friday, April 30, 2021, 4:00pm – 6:30pm
Location: Virtual
Calendar: Stamps Events

Join Stamps Gallery in celebration of the Stamps School of Art and Design Class of 2021. The opening reception for Please Stand By…, the 2021 Virtual Senior Exhibition, takes place on Friday, April 30 at 4:00 pm ET on Zoom. No in-person exhibition events are planned at this time due to public health concerns.

Families and friends of the Stamps community,  as well as the general public, are invited to join Stamps Deans, Faculty, and Students at 4:00 pm on April 30 for remarks commemorating this momentous occasion in the careers of our student artists and designers.

The event will kick off with welcome remarks by Dean Gunalan Nadarajan and faculty. This will be followed by a series of Zoom meeting conversations, each hosted by a faculty member and led by a student facilitator. Each meeting will focus on a different medium that Stamps Senior students are working in. These Zoom meetings will offer students, their families, and friends the opportunity to engage in lively discussions about their processes of making work, and challenges and triumphs encountered during the course of the academic year. Attendees are free to join any of the meeting during each hour of the program, and may move freely between them.
