Fine Art Open Studios

Event Lead, 2012–2014
Columbia College Chicago

Established a budget and introduced an annual mid-semester open house event for undergraduate Fine Art students as part of college’s larger industry engagement event series. As a supplement to curriculum, these events were designed as career development opportunities to cultivate deeper exchanges between students, alumni and visiting community centered in working practice, and to foster opportunities for students to develop communication skills and network professionally. In its third year, the event was expanded to include afternoon critiques with visiting guests.
