At Krannert Art Museum last Saturday, May 5th, this year’s graduating class of Art + Design students presented artworks representing their four years of learning at the University of Illinois. The 2018 Bachelor of Fine Arts exhibition includes work from over 120 students, including majors in painting, new media, industrial design, art history, graphic design, art education, photography, and crafts (metals).

The exhibition is massive; there’s something interesting to see around every corner. The BFA exhibition is up through Sunday, May 13th.
