The Cornish Art department is proud to present a selection of works from the class of 2020. These artists faced a set of unprecedented challenges in their final year at Cornish, but demonstrated an adaptability and resilience that was nothing short of remarkable. This collection of their capstone work represents a compelling range of approaches and themes that underscore the role of art as a vital connection to community from both a making and viewing perspective.

For more details about the artists and their work, visit the website built by Art graduates last spring: website exhibition. You can also view a virtual walkthrough of their complete BFA exhibition.

To see the exhibit, visit the Cornish Alumni Gallery on the third floor at 1000 Lenora St. Open spring through summer 2021.
