The scope of the senior thesis exhibition accomplishes the process of selecting works to be included in the exhibition, determining the layout of the works, and installing the works in the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery.
Students participate in the planning of the opening reception for their thesis exhibition, which is advertised to a broad audience. During the opening they present their work to a general audience and are available to answer questions from guests. After the gallery opening the fine arts department faculty schedules a full departmental review of the work presented by each student. During the review each student articulates a formal presentation of her/his work. During the review students are asked to respond to questions and comments put forth by the faculty.
Class of 2017
On view May 5-12, 2017, the Fine Arts Senior Thesis Exhibition will represent the culmination of studies at Haverford College for the eight seniors graduating in 2017. Over the course of an intense, year-long studio project, each senior shapes a coherent body of work by mastering the techniques and visual vocabulary within their particular concentration. This year the seniors are pursuing concentrations in drawing, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture.
