Graduate Open Studios is a new event that is happening in conjunction with the Fine Arts Portfolio Review. It is being offered to graduate students and reviewers to provide an additional opportunity for students and reviewers to introduce themselves to each other, talk informally about student’s latest work and share information about their professional interests and focus.


Students who participate are required to have work in progress on view in their studio and to be prepared for brief conversations about their work and ways to follow-up with reviewers for possible future opportunities. Students should have copies of their resume or CV, business card and/or portfolio samples to leave with reviewers who they meet.
