Nck DrNaso, A Visit from the Parents
A Year at Columbia is a collaboration between New Student Programs, students from the Art and Design department and the Department of Exhibition and Performance Spaces (DEPS). Eight Columbia College illustration students designed and painted large-scale murals depicting signature campus-wide events of the academic year. Beginning with Weeks of Welcome and culminating in Manifest, the murals create a vibrant timeline of what new students coming to Columbia can expect to experience during their first year. The murals are also examples of the creativity, talent and ambition of Columbia College students. This exhibition was organized by Emily Easton and Justin Witte.
A Year at Columbia is currently showing at the Glass Curtain Gallery located on the first level of 1104 S. Wabash, Chicago, IL 60605. It will be up in the gallery through August 1, 2012. The murals were created by David Alvarado, Kevin Budnik, Peter Clodelter, Nick DrNaso, Erik Lundquist, Solange Henson and Yael Orellana.
