Private studios will be prioritized to senior and junior art majors pursuing a Senior Project in Art. Studio spaces are granted through a portfolio review process after the Spring Submission Deadline: May 1. Note: A new application will need to be completed for each subsequent year. (First-year awardees will also need to apply at this time if wanting to secure a studio space for the following year with an understanding of the priorities stated above).
