ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

This lively group exhibition displays the cumulative work of graduating UCCS Visual & Performing Arts majors with a focus on visual art. From start to finish, the artists own every aspect of the exhibit.  Curated, designed, and installed by the graduating class, this collaborative effort spans the course of the spring semester. Students determine how and what will be displayed to best represent them as they embark on their lifelong creative paths. Working across all media, students explore movements throughout art history from their own perspective. 2021 marks the 15th annual Senior Visual Art Major exhibition.

UCCS’ satellite gallery, GOCA Downtown, opened in the heart of downtown Colorado Springs in 2010. As the landscape of both UCCS and the greater Colorado Springs area continues to change and blossom, the class of 2021 is excited to make their mark with this exhibition. 



ABOUT  AWAKENING

Their work explores with thoughtful vigor installation, digital art, painting and drawing, and textiles. Conceptually these forms connect to each student’s deeply personal experiences of trauma, racial justice, spirituality, and the pandemic. The students are responsible for the curation and installation of the show which opens April 16th 2021.
