BFA students organize group shows in the Barney Building exhibition spaces throughout the school year, in response to a competitive "call for proposals" process. The Undergraduate Student Art Organization faciliates a BFA-wide exhibition and series of events in December of each year. Open Studio events are also planned in the 20 Cooper Studios, as part of the Senior Studio experience.
