Every fall, the graduating seniors of different undergraduate programs at SAIC showcase their interdisciplinary works to the public. Organized by Assistant Director of Exhibitions Josh Fairbanks and the Department of Exhibitions and Exhibition Studies at SAIC, around 140 undergraduate students exhibited their works at SAIC galleries from Nov. 4 to Nov. 18.

The artworks of the students that were on display were unique and diverse. Using the mediums of paintings, sculptures, photographs, and drawings, each student pushed the boundaries of art. The exhibition — which was free and open to everyone — was visited by family and friends of the students as well as the general public.

Asher Jacobson, who came from Milwaukee to see the exhibition, told F Newsmagazine that he had a fantastic time seeing the artworks.

“Iʼm not an artist myself, but Iʼm into the arts. … This is such a cool show. Iʼve never been to such a big gallery space before!” shared Jacobson, who was visiting Chicago to support his friend, one of the exhibitionʼs artists.

Lucija Drake, a SAIC senior and one of the participating artists, also found the exhibition fascinating. “I love how everything here is so diverse. The work really shows how different everyone is,” said Drake.

Here are some pictures of the exhibition taken by Benita Nnachortam and Natia Ser for F Newsmagazine.
