Artwork created by 30 seniors earning Bachelor of Fine Arts this semester is on display this month during the annual 2021 BFA Senior Thesis Exhibition.

Works are now on display are in the Institute of Contemporary Art in the Fine Arts Center on the campus of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

The exhibition is divided into two parts. Show 1 running from April 6-16 and Show 2 from April 20-30.

Artist talks also are part of the exhibition and will take place on Thurs., April 8, for artists in Show 1 and April 22 for artists in Show 2. Students in this year’s exhibition are from  four BFA studio concentrations—graphic design, painting and drawing, photography and media art, and sculpture.

“This exhibition, and the years of work leading up to it, represent an important experiential learning opportunity for our students—one that mirrors contemporary practice, and emboldens them to take risks and discover their path forward as emerging artists and designers,” said Andrew O’Brien, interim head of the Department of Art.

“The BFA class of 2021 has experienced an unimaginable amount of upheaval—racial violence, political division and insurrection amid a global pandemic—all while grappling with their own unique struggles,” he said.

“Their steadfast commitment to inquiry, community and artistic practice is a model they can now reflect upon and use to gather strength for the next chapter in their lives and their careers.”
