DEPS Permanent Student Collection Update – Lending Artwork
While we re-build our Collection database, we will not be repairing, lending or replacing Collection artwork. Within the next school year (2013-2014) we hope to complete this project and make artwork perusal available online. A special announcement will be made to the college community when we are ready to lend again. In the meantime, departments can purchase student artwork via Budget Transfer at ShopColumbia (623 South Wabash, 1st Fl) and online.
DEPS is going green! We will no longer be cutting down trees to make exhibition cards. To stay informed of upcoming shows and events please sign up on the DEPS online mailing list
