The time of quarantine and social isolation has proved to be a very opportune moment to make use of digital connectivity to foster creative experiences. Taking creative inquiry and experimentation a step further, Lucien Smith’s creative platform Serving The People (STP) is launching its own global arts education initiative dubbed The BFA Student Show

“I’m so inspired by the hundreds of submissions we’ve already received,” STP Founder and artist Lucien Smith explained. “It’s so exciting to see how fast the BFA show is growing, and all the amazing support we are getting from students all around the world is so motivating. It’s proof to me that a platform like STP is needed and can be versatile and effective even during this crazy time.”

The show will take a form of a student-led organized exhibition composed of artworks from students currently enrolled in BFA programs from almost 60 art schools around the world, creating an environment free of commercial bias and giving artists expressive freedom and the opportunity to engage with audiences. All of the featured artworks are to be exhibited digitally on stp.world at the end of the school year.

As of now, the participating school include the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Pratt, Parsons, NYU, California Institute of Arts (CalArts), Central Saint Martins, Goldsmiths and others. All currently enrolled BFA students are invited to make their submissions for a chance to be a part of this international exhibition. 

Submissions can be made here anytime before May 15, 2020.
