The Ferguson Art Gallery at Concordia University Chicago presents the Graduating Senior Art Show, a virtual exhibition, which is currently viewable online at: concordiasenior.myportfolio.com. Graduating art majors in the areas of studio art, graphic arts, pre-art therapy and art education have exhibited a wide variety of two- and three-dimensional artwork. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the class of 2020 was not able to have their spring gallery show in person—a show that seniors work toward all year.

“The arts always persevere and make our lives more livable. This exhibition is proof of the dedicated work and creativity that continued even during a worldwide shutdown and pandemic. We celebrate our 2020 graduating art majors by mounting this exhibition of their amazing work,” said BettyAnn Mocek, professor of art and director of the Ferguson Gallery.  “The dedication of our art graduates and the pride the Art Department and University have in their accomplishments has not gone unnoticed. This exhibition is a tribute to their spirit and a way to inspire our current campus community as we embark on another historical and exciting semester.”

The online exhibition is the first of what the University hopes to be many new ways of bringing the arts, including music and theater, to the community as the pandemic continues to affect campus life. The Ferguson Art Gallery is closed to in-person visits by the public at this time. For more information, visit Ferguson Art Gallery online or call 708-209-3013.
