There are 19 studio spaces in the Fisher Studio Arts Building and 16 in the Bard Exhibition Center in Red Hook. Studios are allocated each semester at the first Senior Seminar class meeting. Senior IIs have first choice of the studio spaces they wish to occupy. Senior Is draw lots and can exchange with each other if they choose.
Fisher Studio Arts Building
The exhibition space in the Fisher Studio Arts Building permits an ambitious schedule of exhibitions, which are an integral component of the program. In addition to open student exhibitions, Senior Project shows, and Moderation exhibitions, student work on particular themes is presented at student-curated and faculty-curated shows. Bard’s Center for Curatorial Studies is another on-campus site for exhibitions of contemporary art.
