The New Creators: SVA Talent Shows 2019


SVA Talent Shows are an annual series of exhibitions, presentations, open studios, portfolio reviews and screenings showcasing the next generation of artists and creative professionals graduating from the School of Visual Arts.

The series was created in 2000 as a way for students, faculty, parents and industry professionals to navigate the many end-of-year exhibitions and events that take place each year at SVA. These showcases highlight the diversity and quality of work produced across the College's undergraduate and graduate departments. Don't miss the chance to see these artists and designers make their mark.
