Senior Exhibitions 2021

The Art and Design program at Graceland University is pleased to present this exhibition catalog of Bachelor of Arts Senior Thesis Exhibitions. Four years ago, the seven artists in this incredible BA class – Jared Connell, Madison Fears, Kait James, Joachim Kikuni, Emmanuel McCarter, Emily McKinney, and Kaylee Montgomery – began a challenging process, the result of which is presented here. These works are a representation of thousands of hours of experimentation, research, problem solving, exploration, risk taking, and dedication.

These works engage us in meaningful conversations and challenge how we see the world. These artists are now part of a growing community of graduates that will shape the future. We thank them for sharing their journey with us and look forward to seeing how they will impact this ever-changing landscape of visual communication.

We are so proud of the class of 2021!
