NEXT 2014

NEXT at the Corcoran is the Corcoran College of Art and Design's annual celebration of the brilliance and promise of its students.

Each degree program at the Corcoran requires students to successfully complete a thesis project.

Theses can take many forms--from written research papers to a series of paintings--and they all represent a culmination of a student's learning experiences at the Corcoran and a glimpse of future promise. Bachelor of Fine Arts students exhibit their theses on the walls of the Gallery while students in the Master of Arts, Master of Arts Teaching, and Bachelor of Arts programs give pictoral and oral presentations of their projects to the College and Gallery audiences. 

Together, these presentations are called NEXT at the Corcoran.

NEXT 2014 will take place from April 10 to May 18, 2014.
