In the most traditional sense, a portrait is a depiction of a person; face, head and shoulders. But in a more expanded interpretation, a portrait is "a representation or impression of someone or something in language or on film." Through this approach, many images could be perceived as portraits if they attempt to create a representation of a cumulative event, rather than depicting a singular moment or figure.

About C33 Gallery

Located on the bustling corner of Congress Parkway and Wabash Ave, C33 Gallery serves as an art gallery and meeting place for students. With its distinctive storefront windows, C33 is ideal for non-traditional media and site-specific installation. C33 houses up to 14 student exhibitions per school year and is the only open submission student gallery on campus.  Any student at Columbia may submit a proposal to show their work in the space. If selected, students will receive a small stipend for materials as well as access to all of the galleries tools and supplies. The DEPS staff will also assist the student in the installation and preperation of her or his exhibition.

We are currently accepting proposals from students to show their work in the C33 Gallery for the SPRING semester.  Students may submit proposals for solo exhibitions or group exhibtions or projects.
