2022 Graduating Student Exhibition
This 2022 Graduating Student Exhibition (GSE) presents the work of more than 600 student graduates in 16 areas of study from the School of Art and Design. The work is the culmination of each student’s unique experience in FIT’s diverse, challenging, and demanding undergraduate art and design programs. Featuring juried, award–winning, and thesis projects, this presentation is the manifestation of several years of research, experimentation, critical thinking, and artistic proficiency. The Graduating Student Exhibition advances the college’s philosophy that integrates practice in industry with theory and teaching inside the studio.
