Exhibitions & Events

The Corcoran School of the Arts and Design provides a year-round forum for the exhibition of work by students and visiting artists. In addition, graduating seniors and graduate students have the opportunity to exhibit the culmination of their Corcoran School studies in a thesis exhibition titled NEXT at the end of the academic school year. Most of these events and exhibits are open to the public.
