During the course of each year, MIAD offers no less than three juried exhibitions for students to gain real-world exhibition experience, and for one week in March, Foundations students submitted 225 artworks for the 2015 Foundations Juried Exhibition. Only 38 pieces were accepted into the stringently juried show.
According to Core Coordinator Nicholas Frank, students who apply for our juried exhibitions gain valuable experience whether their work is accepted or not – they gain the experience of creating artist statements, working with deadlines, and gathering and submitting materials that are cohesive and equally strong.
Those who do not get accepted learn the resilience it takes to be an artist today, and those who do get accepted have the thrill of their talent being recognized by an established artist and juror.
The 2015 Foundations Juried Exhibition reflects the quality of MIAD’s first-year experience, which was reinvented under the leadership of Professor Jason S. Yi in 2010.
An Awards Ceremony will be held in the East Gallery, Friday, April 10 at 1:30 p.m. where seven students will be honored with prizes. The exhibition will be on view through April 26.
