We are pleased to announce the call for submissions for the AMT Undergraduate Festival Exhibition, as well as a showcase of limited edition works. AMT will host a curated exhibition in the Kellen Gallery, located at 2 West 13th Street, from May 9th to May 24th, and then showcase selected limited edition works through a pop up shop from May 20th to May 24th.
These two opportunities are a chance for our school to communicate to the public, friends and neighbors and our own community just some of the relevant and current issues and ideas that our graduating students are addressing through art and design. We welcome Amanda Parmer as our guest curator who will work with faculty across all AMT undergraduate programs to select the topics and work that will represent the school in this inaugural exhibition and showcase. All AMT 2013 graduating BFA and AAS students are encouraged to apply for these curated opportunities.
You must be logged into your newschool.edu account to access the form.
