Virtual Visual Arts Thesis 2020

May 11, 2020

The Visual Arts Department is presenting its BFA Thesis Exhibit virtually. While this is something the College of Arts & Media has done previously, the online presentation is usually accompanied by an annual springtime exhibition at Red Line Contemporary Art Center. The creative work included showcases the department’s six areas of study: 3D Graphics & Animation, Art History, Art Practices, Digital Design, Illustration, and Photography. The show offers something everyone, but here’s a little taste of artistic delights. Note: The classifications are our own, and some of the art has been cropped due to space constraints.

About the Show: The show is held annually each spring at Red Line Contemporary Art Center, but it will be postponed for a viewing at the Emmanuel Gallery this fall. A virtual celebration will take place on Friday, May 15 from 5 – 6 p.m. via Zoom. In an effort to create a safe, online space, the Zoom link will not be shared on social media.⁠ Members of the CU Denver Community will receive a Zoom link via university email on Monday, May 11.⁠ For friends of CAM and others interested in attending, please email Sean Koto at or Haleigh Shipley at to receive the Zoom invite.⁠
