Please join us Thursday, November 9th from 6:00-9:00pm for our annual Graduate Open Studios event!
Open Studios is an opportunity for the public to meet the next generation of artists at UB. Students in UB’s graduate programs in Art and Media Study invite the public into their studios to engage with their work on more intimate terms. This year’s event is distributed throughout the Center for the Arts on North Campus, and includes a program of film screenings and performances throughout the evening. We’re aiming to create a dynamic event that attracts members of the local arts community as well as the public at large and introduces the incredible work our graduates are making to a broad and diverse audience.
