See it here first. Each year, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) celebrates our talented students completing their degrees. Join us for boundary-breaking, creative exhibitions and events featuring student work. More events will be added.
The annual MAATC Exhibition presents the artwork and practices of students graduating with a Master of Arts in Art Therapy and Counseling. The educational aim of this exhibition is to provide an opportunity for students to present their own individual lived practices and collaboratively examine the clinical, ethical, and aesthetic implications of presenting the profession of art therapy through an exhibition. Deeply reflective and inquisitive, the artists present a multitude of approaches, exemplifying the program’s philosophy of integrating the emergent artist-art therapist identity. For more information about the program, visit saic.edu/arttherapy.
Reception: Saturday, January 28, 12:00 p.m.–5:00 p.m.
An Artist Talk and Q&A will be held by the MAATC Exhibition participants during the opening reception on Lower Level 2 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. CT.
This presentation features the work of 14 students completing the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Studio. Participating artists include Lindsay Adams, Isaac Armendariz-Lopez, Nic Chung, Shanti Grandhi, Rebecca Hodel, Sol Lee, James Ross Neiswonger, Sunjae Park, Pedro Trueba Ramirez, Juju Marie Rodríguez Mieszaniec, Charlotte Saylor, Hammzat Tahabsam, Nanako Kono, and Joshua Weinberg.
Reception: Saturday, January 28, 12:00 p.m.– 5:00 p.m.
Graduate Exhibition One is the first of two graduate exhibitions this spring and presents new and innovative work by 68 of SAIC’s Master of Fine Arts candidates.
The Spring Undergraduate Exhibition showcases the culminating work of more than 200 graduating seniors. This exhibition features the ambitious and innovative interdisciplinary work of our students, the next generation of artists, scholars, and citizens. It is a living example of the crossing of disciplines and challenging assumptions that SAIC encourages in each student.
The Film, Video, New Media, Animation, and Sound Festival features the work of graduate and undergraduate students from the class of 2023.
