The art selected is the culmination of each student’s unique experience in FIT’s diverse, challenging, and demanding undergraduate Art and Design programs. Featuring juried, award-winning, and thesis projects, this exhibition is the manifestation of several years of research, experimentation, critical thinking, and artistic proficiency. The Graduating Student Exhibition advances the college’s applied philosophy that integrates practice in industry with theory and teaching inside the studio. Visit
