We love to highlight our graduating students’ work!  It’s all over the walls of our campus, and every other year or so, we work to organize an exhibition open to the public.  Our next showcase is…

The Creative Crop:

In Association with the Chicago Loop Alliance Foundation and Pop-Up Art Loop, Westwood College’s Chicago Loop Campus is hosting our second ever Student Portfolio Showcase event, highlighting 8 of our recent graduates in Visual Communication and Animation. This creative crop of emerging artists will show us what they’ve got, from the early seeds of an idea to the ripened fruit of their labor, demonstrating their diverse talents in print design, video, animation, photography, illustration, interactive and web.
