Senior Art Projects 2020

Graduates of the Graphic Design Program investigate multiple methods of visual communication. Thesis projects range from brand development, product design, and websites to narrative photography, documentary videos and video games. Each student has focused the past year on one project, choosing a message or concept that they want to communicate with the world. These are the results of that dedication and growth over the year.

Studio Art Majors and Minors investigate the complexity of personal artistic expression through the lens of art history and studio practice. They have their hands in photography, painting, drawing, ceramics, printmaking, and digital media. Informed by their personal experiences, each student works in the medium of their choice, combining their years of education to focus on one theme for their thesis work. These projects highlight their investigation in the world around them.

Art Therapy majors complete a pre professional program which investigates psychology, studio art, art history, and art therapy. Art therapy is most often used with psychotherapy to treat a variety of mental health issues and issues with relationship and life transitions. These students explore how art can help heal though the process, meaning and feeling of art making. Graduating seniors explore this process in their personal lives, in tandem with practicum experiences at clinics around Boston.

Art history majors study the history of art, which is broadly defined to include a wide range of visual objects and spans across diverse cultures and time periods.  Students take a multidisciplinary approach to their studies that includes historical, cultural, political and social analysis.   Graduates of the program go on to work in art museums and other cultural institutions such as commercial galleries or apply to graduate programs not only in art history but in art-related fields of study such as arts administration.
