Commencement Exhibition


The annual CCA Commencement Exhibition serves as the centerpiece of CCA’s commencement weekend and highlights a diverse selection of work by graduating students in Architecture, Design, Fine Arts, and Humanities & Sciences. The 2019 exhibition and related events took place in CCA’s main nave, N classrooms, entryway, and presentation space over Commencement weekend, May 17-20, with a college-wide celebratory Commencement reception on the evening of Saturday, May 18th from 6-10 p.m. Installation images of the 2019 Commencement Exhibition can be viewed here.

The sign up form for the 2019 Commencement Exhibition is now closed. Please check back in spring 2020 to sign up for the 2020 Commencement Exhibition. When you do, we recommend that you apply with existing work. Please propose 3 works/projects, in order of preference. The Divisional Curator from your Division will make the final selection. All students who propose feasible work will be included, but the Divisional Curator makes the final selection of work based on available space, mediums, media, etc. Works can be 2D, 3D, video, installation, performance, lecture, social practice, writing and written text, ipad applications, installation, fashion and textiles, and more. Architecture Students: if you are applying with your thesis work, please divide your submissions into a drawing, a model, etc. as opposed to submitting your entire project as one item.

Please note: If you are interested in submitting a proposal for a large-scale installation in the main Nave either as an individual or a student collaboration, you will need to complete a separate application. You are allowed to complete both applications, but please apply with different works. If you are not selected for a large-scale Nave installation, you may still participate in the Commencement Exhibition. For additional information, please e-mail and/or refer to our Commencement Exhibition FAQ page, which will be updated with new instructions and information in Spring 2020.
