The annual Senior Show & Celebration
BFA graduating students in digital media, fine art, graphic design, illustration and photography work with faculty in an installation exercise that provides insight into the process of art exhibition.
The annual "Senior Show & Celebration" uses all of the gallery and classroom space within the college to display the work of its graduating seniors.
The opening reception for the SS&C, held on a Saturday in late April or early May, is a major college event and is the largest opening of an art show by a single arts organization in Lancaster. More than 1,000 friends, family members, and visitors attend. Artwork fills every floor of the college (covering over 60,000 square feet) and guests are treated to live music and refreshments.
