Every year the students of the New College of Florida Art History and Art Areas of Concentration in collaboration with their professors and with the support of our community, produce a catalogue to accompany the final thesis exhibition in which the student artists present their work. This year, for the first time ever, we are able to make the catalogue available to our entire community! Proceeds are 100% dedicated to supporting current and future student artists and art historians at New College. The catalogue is a hard cover, dust-jacketed coffee-table book celebrating the arts at New College.
You can also support New College students by following us on Facebook and Instagram, and attending the exhibition, which is free and open to the public!
"un/seen bodies" is open April 20 - May 12, 2023, Monday through Friday, 12 - 5 PM in Isermann Gallery.
