Corcoran Graduate

Kristoffer Tripplaar and Cheraya Esters, recent graduates of the Corcoran College of Art + Design, were selected to participate in the Conner Contemporary Art's Academy 2008, an invitational survey dedicated to outstanding work by recent fine art graduates of regional college art programs. As in previous years, the curators attended BFA and MFA exhibitions between December and June, viewing works in person to formulate a profile of area art programs. After consulting with artists, they selected a group of works created in various media, including painting, video, sculpture, and photography, which demonstrate individual achievement and represent vital currents in the fine art curricula of our region. The show runs July 11-26, 2008. For more information, please go to
