Senior Exhibition Catalog
Examples of thesis work by the senior class are featured in an exhibition catalog, 20/20 Vision, which will accompany their rescheduled Gallery exhibition. Traditionally set apart from the Senior Show, the exhibition highlights one work from each senior. These works are selected in collaboration with the students and their thesis instructors and displayed within the Main Gallery. This inaugural publication, written by the seniors, debuts here in a digital format. Designed by an alumna, it will be locally printed in Lancaster this fall.
The Instagram Live Senior Spotlight event at @pcad_exhibitions was part of Lancaster’s May 1 Virtual First Friday. The Class of 2020 shared stories of their life in Lancaster city, the impact of First Fridays, their art school experience, and how they navigate living a life of creativity and innovation.
