Alumni Then and Now

A Selection of Student Works from the UBC Okanagan Public Art Collection, Exhibited with Recent Works by the Same Artists

Over the past 30 years, student work acquired from graduating exhibitions has formed the foundation of the Public Art Collection on UBC’s Okanagan campus. As UBC celebrates its 100th anniversary, the collection celebrates its 30th year. To mark the occasion, UBC Okanagan, in conjunction with the Lake Country Art Gallery and with the support of the Centennial Initiatives Fund, is now showcasing the work of a selection of those emerging artists along with their current work. The exhibition continues until May 21st, 2016.

In this exhibition, we present a selection of artists whose works were selected for the collection when they graduated, and we show their work alongside examples of their current activities.
