Weekend Pick: Corcoran BFA Senior Show!

This weekend there’s only one place to see and be seen: The Corcoran’s Senior Show NEXT, which opens on Saturday night!

As I reported last year, I was uber-impressed with the quality of the work and the diversity of mediums and approaches of Corcoran’s graduating seniors in Next 2011. I also thought that Corcoran’s students showed-up American’s MFA graduates in 2011 as well.

Besides the expectation of some really great work in this exhibit, this is one of the most fun events of the year. The energy and crowd are young, diverse, wacky, cool, unpretentious and just straight up rad.

Opening reception 6-8 p.m. and celebration, 8-10 p.m. on Saturday, April 14th at The Corcoran Gallery of Art. Exhibit runs through May 20th.
