Six graduates of the Art Students League’s Certificate Program for 2014 are exhibiting work in The Final Project. This exhibition marks the culmination of a four-year course of study and offers students an opportunity to present a cohesive body of work in a selected discipline. The Certificate Program emphasizes drawing to provide every student with a strong foundation; from there, students choose a concentration in painting, sculpture, or printmaking. The Final Project this year includes work by Michal Vered Ammar, Diana Carino-Buitrago, Rodolfo Edwards, Yasuaki Okamoto, Chika Yoshii, and Soyeon Kim. The exhibition continues in the Phyllis Harriman Mason Gallery at the Art Students League through July 24, 2014.
