Spring 2020 End of Semester Exhibition

Spring 2020 End of Semester Exhibition

Welcome to the Spring 2020 End of Semester Virtual Exhibition. While our world was turned upside down by the COVID-19 crisis, our students adapted to new ways of working in their homes, sometimes without access to the equipment that had become crucial to their studio practice. With grit and determination, our students found new ways to create and to push their creative practice to new lengths. Enjoy this exhibition which is a culmination of a semester characterized by change and adaptation.

Lead Bank Emerging Artist Nominees - Spring 2020

Each year Lead Bank Recognizes four students and their respective departments with their Lead Emerging Artist Prize (LEAP). Each student receives a financial award of $500 per student and $200 for their department. Additionally, the four LEAP award recipients will be featured with a solo art exhibition at the bank’s Crossroads branch at 1801 Main Street for approximately three months beginning this summer. Each year the KCAI faculty are asked to nominate the students they believe are deserving of this award. Below are this year’s nominees.
