ShopColumbia, Columbia College Chicago's student art store features original designs created and inspired by Columbia artists. Spanning all media and disciplines, ShopColumbia is defined by what Columbia students are making right now. An extension of the classroom and a laboratory for experimentation, the store supports students by providing a professional environment to learn the process of marketing and selling work and a vibrant venue for earning income.
The Department of Exhibition and Performance Spaces (DEPS), the student centers and galleries of Columbia College, opened ShopColumbia on October 16, 2008 to address the need to provide students a commercial venue for showcasing and selling their work. As the one-year milestone approaches, ShopColumbia has met all goals set and exceeded growth expectations. Since opening its doors, ShopColumbia artists have earned over $200,000 from the sale of their work. Proceeds from sales also support student scholarships. In addition, with the skills learned by working with the store, students become empowered to expand into external marketplaces.
