ArtsForce is a conference for current College of Fine Arts undergraduate students that began in the fall of 2013 in collaboration with Strategic National Arts Alumni Project (SNAAP) . Students attend events and workshops that prepare them to understand and articulate the transferrable skills they are developing. Students will also have an opportunity to network with arts alumni and members of various local arts organizations. Students will take away from the conference tools that will undoubtedly ease the transition from college into the modern workforce.
This triennial exhibition showcases the newest work by the University of Utah’s Department of Art and Design faculty and celebrates the working artists who inspire the community through their creative output and their teaching.
