Created as a way for art, design and film enthusiasts and industry professionals to navigate the many end-of-year exhibitions and events at the School of Visual Arts, SVA Shows highlights the diversity and quality of work produced across the College’s undergraduate and graduate departments.

Check out this year’s lineup below, and visit an online exhibition, hear innovative ideas at a virtual thesis presentation or spot the next award-winning filmmaker at a live-streamed screening this spring and summer. Don’t miss the chance to see these artists and designers make their mark.
