CU Denver College of Arts & Media Redline BFA Thesis Show

Every year the seniors in CU Denver’s bachelor of fine arts degree program end their final year of study with one final test: the BFA Thesis Exhibition. After a year or more of working on a project to represent all they learned, students majoring in photography, painting/drawing, transmedia-sculpture, digital animation, illustration, and digital design display their final product at RedLine, a contemporary art gallery in Denver with a reputation for housing outstanding national and international shows. There, in a space where hundreds of established artists have displayed their work, the student artists will present theirs for the public.
