The first Emerging Young Artists (EYA) exhibition was held in the CVPA Campus Gallery at the College of Visual and Performing Arts in Spring 2013. Since then the EYA has evolved to become an important CVPA tradition as a highly competitive annual high school juried exhibition that showcases the talents of New England’s young artists. The EYA is juried by the Dean of CVPA and culminates in the exhibition reception and awards presentation with hundreds of guests.
The College of Visual and Performing Arts hosts numerous lectures throughout the year. Noted artists, designers, curators, critics, and historians share their perspectives, expertise, and processes, to give insight into contemporary issues and professional practice. Many are free and open to the public.
Artists: Ryan Cooley, Paulina Fuenzalida-Guzmán, Taylor Hickey, Shabnam Jannesari, Sung Ji Lee (이성지), Madison Moreno, Danielle O'Malley, Valleri Rami, Cynthia Bryndis Schilling, Tran Duc Binh Vu (Vũ Trần Đức Bình), Emma Young
