Virtual Galleries 2020 Submissions

Virtual Gallery – All-Level and Virtual Gallery – Senior Works (titles subject to change) will be Evergreen’s first series of online-only galleries featuring artwork created by students over the academic year.

As part of the opening event for the Senior Works show on June 9, the selected artists will have the opportunity to participate in a live event where they will have 3-5 minutes to share images and talk about their process and their work. These events will be open to the public and will be an opportunity to showcase some of our students’ best work and celebrate virtually with friends and family.

The Virtual Galleries will remain on display through graduation and beyond via our Evergreen Gallery site.
