Images from the 2014 VCS Open Studios

VCS Open Studios Poster Final

Today’s post presents images from the 2014 VCS open studios, which took place at the end of the 2013-2014 academic year. You can also see a few more at the Visual & Critical Studies Flickr page.

This year’s event showcased a wide range of works from the graduating seniors and many of the 1st through 3rd-year students. Virtually the entire 4th floor of 133 West 21st Street was used as exhibition space, including the studios, hallways, classrooms, library, and even the women’s restroom.

I’ll post a follow-up with more views of the senior thesis work in a few days.
