A Year At Columbia

Exhibition Dates: June 18 - August 01, 2012


A Year at Columbia is a collaboration between New Student Programs, students from the Art and Design department and the Department of Exhibition and Performance Spaces (DEPS). Eight Columbia College illustration students designed and painted large-scale murals depicting signature campus-wide events of the academic year. Beginning with Weeks of Welcome and culminating in Manifest, the murals create a vibrant timeline of what new students coming to Columbia can expect to experience during their first year. The murals are also examples of the creativity, talent and ambition of Columbia College students. This exhibition was organized by Emily Easton and Justin Witte.

The murals were created by:

  • David Alvarado
  • Kevin Budnik
  • Peter Clodfelter
  • Nick DrNaso
  • Erik Lundquist
  • Solange Henson
  • Yael Orellana


Academic Partners: Art & Design Department, New Student Programs and Orientation
