RMCAD Virtual Grad Exhibition

RMCAD Virtual Grad Exhibition

Denver Digerati and Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design (RMCAD) continue their collaborative effort that presents the school's Summer 2020 Graduating Students' final projects as a Virtual Art Exhibition through Supernova.video, Denver Digerati’s consumer streaming app. The collaboration is in response to the COVID19 crisis that has shuttered public venues, causing students and institutions to seek online solutions.

To prepare for this experience, the Philip J. Steele Gallery has worked remotely with students to convert student-captured documentation of 2D and 3D work into professional motion-based videos. The directive elevates the student artworks in a manner most compatible with the school's original curriculum goals.

Discover the hard work of Denver’s newest artists and designers. As one of Colorado’s leading arts institutions, RMCAD has a long history of presenting outstanding contemporary art exhibitions, dovetailing in recent years with some of Denver Digerati's top tier of motion-based artists. They've gone the extra mile at this time to provide an optimized solution for their students, with pathways for future development that will be critical for finding and navigating their careers.
