The 2007 Senior Exhibition highlights new artwork by graduating seniors of UCCS's Visual and Performing Arts department. This is the first senior art exhibition held at UCCS and it is a tradition that will continue annually.
The Visual and Performing Arts department (VaPA) offers a cross-disciplinary degree that encourages innovative collaboration between disciplines. This focus integrates art history, film studies, museum and gallery practice, music, theatre, and visual arts. Students will complete this degree with a primary concentration in one area and develop a comprehensive knowledge in each of the major disciplines. Through studio arts, performance, theory, scholarship, and creative uses of media and technology, students will engage in an investigative approach to the arts, where the local and global converge, where cross-fertilization inspires critical thinking, dialogue, improvisation, and where diversity of thought is intrinsic to artistic process and practice.
When students complete this degree, they will have the skills and knowledge to enter graduate school or a variety of careers in the arts.
