2008 BFA Senior Thesis Exhibitions
The 2008 BFA Senior Thesis Exhibitions consisted of a series of week-long, rotating exhibitions in Gallery 31, and featured photojournalism, photography, graphic design, digital media design and fine art produced by members of the graduating class, grouped by major. Seniors in the College’s Bachelor of Fine Arts program were responsible for all aspects of their thesis exhibitions, from exhibition design to installation—an experience vital to the students’ professional and artistic development.
The individual shows culminated in May in the 2008 All-Senior Exhibition, a dynamic exhibition installed in four museum galleries, representing all disciplines and featuring work by every student in the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program.
Gallery 31 is the Corcoran’s dedicated exhibition space for the Corcoran College of Art + Design. The space hosts exhibitions by the Corcoran’s faculty, students, alumni, visiting artists, and annual senior thesis exhibitions. The name was selected by the students, referring to the area’s previous designation as “Room 31” in original Corcoran plans. Located at the New York Avenue entrance of the Corcoran, Gallery 31 is open during Gallery hours and is free to the public.
