The School of Art & Art History is very excited to announce that three of our graduating BFA students have been selected to participate in this year's LAUNCH Invitational Residency at Chicago Artist's Coalition.
Please join us in congratulating Nadine Abdelrahim, Adam Cipcic, and Oscar Chavez on their acceptance into this amazing program!
Initiated in 2013, LAUNCH Invitational Residency is a nomination-based professional development program for artists emerging from Chicago area undergraduate schools.
Combining career development, creative practice, and community-building, LAUNCH empowers students to identify and pursue the next steps in their professional practice by introducing them to the tools, resources, and networks that will help them achieve their goals. Offered to a limited number of promising students selected by faculty, the 4-day-long experience creates an intimate, rigorous environment within which artists learn from both professionals and peers in order to develop a personalized approach to starting a fulfilling career.
