Introducing Student Picks
Student Picks is SCMA’s student exhibition program. Each year, seven students are selected by lottery to organize individual monthly exhibitions using the collection of prints, drawings and photographs. Exhibitions are held in the Cunningham Center from 12 - 4 on the first Friday of the month during the academic year.
Student Picks allows students to engage with works of art from a perspective that isn’t necessarily art historical—they simply follow their enthusiasm through the collection, and what they come up with is always exciting and often extraordinary. Our students help us see the collection fresh, through new eyes; they light on objects we rarely use or pair works we never would have thought of pairing.
Stay tuned for posts from our Student Picks curators on creating their own art exhibition! For now, you can read more about Student Picks on the website, on the Grécourt Gate, and in the Sophian. And take a look at these pictures from last year's Student Picks exhibitions. This should get you geared up to enter the lottery yourself this academic year!!! Ballot boxes will start appearing around campus on September 5. (Ready, get set, GO!)
