In Winter 2018, six Sheridan student artists, whose work is on display in this exhibition, received the inaugural Graduating Student Awards. These awards recognize outstanding graduating students and purchase their artwork for inclusion in our Art Lending Library. This initiative is a collaboration between the Creative Campus Galleries (CCG) and the Faculty of Animation, Arts, and Design (FAAD), with generous funding from Sheridan’s Alumni and Advancement department. Now an annual program, members of the CCG team visit the studios and exhibitions of graduating students from across FAAD. They evaluate individual artworks as well as the professional profile demonstrated by students, who hone their skills writing artist statements and interacting with curators.

Beginning Summer 2019, members of the Sheridan community can borrow work from the Art Lending Library to install in spaces across our three campuses. The collection will continue to grow as new work is acquired each year through the Graduating Student Awards.
