Senior Studio, Exhibition & Review
All B.F.A. students in studio art must complete a year-long senior studio course, resulting in a cohesive body of work. Each student will work on this capstone project with a faculty mentor.
B.F.A. students will be responsible for the following aspects of their senior exhibition:
- Installation of body of work
- Exhibition promotion (posters, designed and printed; press release, etc.)
- Gallery talk at exhibition opening
All B.F.A. students will undergo a senior review, consisting of:
- Critique of the body of work and discussion of process
- Discussion of how the student’s work connects to non-art investigation*
- Discussion of expectations for the body of work moving forward
- Discussion of professional goals and/or opportunities within art and design industries
The process book is a record of the evolution of ideas throughout a student’s senior studio. This documentation reflects the depth of investigation into research material, artists, designers, photographers, and applicable study outside of art.
*This process keeps in mind that Coker is a liberal arts institution, and that our B.F.A. students should have an awareness of what a liberal arts education encapsulates.
