About the Program Thesis Exhibition
In the final weeks of each summer session, students in their third-year present their thesis projects to the public in the form of a group exhibition or individual presentation (screening, performance, or reading). The exhibition takes place in our off-campus gallery in nearby Red Hook, while presentations occur in various on-campus facilities.
