Point of Departure

April 4 - May 3, 2013
Reception: April 18, 2013, 7 - 10pm

In Point of Departure, Columbia College Chicago BFA candidates pair with established Chicago-based artists working with similar concepts or materials to gain real-world knowledge and experience. The students have visited with the artists, observed their studio practice, and engaged in critical dialogues. The resulting paired works reflect the creative continuity between the artists, bridging the gap between graduation and initiation into the Chicago art community.
