Annually, the Columbia University School of the Arts Visual Arts Program presents thesis and first-year exhibitions at the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery at the Lenfest Center for the Arts. These exhibitions encompass work by artists who have completed their first and final year of the Visual Arts MFA Program.

Due to COVID-19, both in-person exhibitions, which were scheduled to be held spring 2020, have been postponed until it is safe to do so. New dates will be announced on our website.

The students, faculty, and staff of the Visual Arts Program are excited to share artworks from the MFA classes of 2020 and 2021 with you. Please join us in celebrating a new generation of artists during this challenging but also hopeful time.
