The student-run, student-funded and student-curated exhibition features 30 Fine Arts majors in Painting/Drawing, Printmaking and Sculpture, who had the desire to extend past the specialized institutional constraints to work and present together in the larger Philadelphia art community. The show demonstrates a strong sense of interdisciplinary comradery among the three programs.

The upcoming exhibit at Crane Arts gives a broader audience access to the work and allows the recent graduates to join in on the conversations already being held around the local art scene. The students have taken this chance to create a new space where they can articulate and add to the contemporary portrait of Philadelphia.
