Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University will proudly spotlight the creative endeavors of its 2024 graduates at its annual student exhibition. The exhibition runs from April 29 to May 4, transforming the 17 Fountain St. building into a dynamic gallery where emerging artists and designers from various programs will unveil their finest works to the public.

“Celebrating our 2024 graduating seniors, this exhibition represents a culmination of student experience and highlights the breadth of learning that happens in our studios, labs, and classrooms,” said KCAD President Tara McCrackin.

“These talented emerging artists and designers have dedicated themselves to expanding their skills and pushing the boundaries of their disciplines, and we are proud share their passion with the entire community.”

The celebration culminates with a closing reception on May 3 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., featuring live performances by local bands Low Phase and PHABIES. This event, along with the exhibition, is open to all at no cost.

Employers seeking fresh talent and art enthusiasts looking to acquire unique pieces will find opportunities at the exhibition. Additionally, an online display will complement the on-campus showcase; visit kcad.edu/ase.
