The Brooklyn College Master of Fine Arts Program in Visual Arts will have its traditional yearly exhibit of works of graduating students at the WAH Center for the first time.
2010 B.C. is a group exhibit featuring 13 artists graduating from the M.F.A. Program. The exhibit’s curator is Siebren Versteeg, the famed multimedia artist. The class spent two years working with the college’s renowned faculty, including Vito Acconci, Archie Rand, Patricia Cronin and Jennifer McCoy. The works were selected from among the candidates’ most inspired efforts.
Maria Catalano Rand, the director of the college’s art gallery, said, “The exhibit manifests convergent philosophies that represent the wonderful demographic conglomerate that composes the Brooklyn College student body,” adding, “It’s an honor to present their work.”
