Making It: Now - An exhibition of recently graduated alumni
This exhibition is composed of fifty-four alumni who received arts degrees from either a BA in Fine Arts, BFA In Studio Arts, BFA in Communication Arts and Design, BFA in Interior Architecture, MA in Studio Arts or MAT at the University of Louisville since 2000. They are currently working as artists, arts educators, designers, illustrators, curators, gallery directors and arts activists. They also may be running their own business and/or continuing their education (two are currently in PhD programs). Of the alumni in “Making it: Now”, twenty-seven have gone on to earn higher degrees at other institutions including Tyler School of Art, Yale University, Cranbrook Academy of Art, Virginia Commonwealth University, New York Academy of Art, Carnegie Mellon University, New York University, Rhode Island School of Art, University of Pennsylvania, Pratt, University of Cincinnati and University of Wisconsin-Madison. Some have stayed in Louisville or this region while others have moved to New York, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, San Francisco and all points between.
