Carnegie Mellon 2009
BFA Senior Exhibition

May 1 - 17, 2009
Reception: Friday May 1, 6-8pm

"Hidden away for the past four years in the College of Fine Arts, From The Vault presents the artworks of Carnegie Mellon University’s finest degenerate delinquents, rebels with a cause, spiritual enthusiasts, and practical dreamers. The most creative criminals in the book, we present to you the class of 2009: panpsychists, selcouthists, paralogists, and strikhedonists. Painting, sculpture, electronic media, print, and performance – the students of the School of Art have carved new paths and wayward routes in the ever-changing realms of the visual. Today we release Carnegie Mellon’s best-kept secrets from the vault." - Michelle Lee, BFA 2009
