Alumni . 2020 Alumni Exhibition
May 19, 2020: Ongoing challenges around COVID-19 limit our ability to produce an exhibition in Reinberger Gallery this summer, and—perhaps most importantly—to gather as a group and reconnect around art. After considering a variety of options, including a virtual exhibition, the committee decided the best course of action is to postpone the show until we can host something that fulfills the mission of the show.
While we are saddened to share this news, we look forward to connecting with you before too long. Among those opportunities next year will be How Are You Doing?, an exhibition of work by this year’s graduating class, who were not able to see their final work in an in-person BFA Exhibition. How Are You Doing? will open March 25, 2021.
We are continually amazed by the talent and artistic excellence that our alumni display in their work. We look forward to a time when we can gather together again.
The Alumni Council is made up of volunteers who communicate with CIA leaders and pursue a mission to sustain and build a network of alumni with a lifelong connection to the College. The Council is committed to sharing ideas and establishing opportunities for alumni involvement by producing events such as the alumni exhibition. The Council fosters ongoing relationships with students, faculty, and staff, and conveys the value of maintaining a strong connection with CIA.
While we were unable to host an Alumni Exhibition on the CIA campus this year, a number of artists who submitted work for consideration gladly shared their websites with us.
