This year, Sheridan is launching a new program of art awards for students in their graduating year. This program is intended to recognize outstanding work in the graduating classes at Sheridan and to acquire exceptional artworks to be displayed on our creative campuses. For each artwork selected by the curatorial committee, students will be awarded $500 and the work will be included in the Sheridan Public Art Collection. The Sheridan Public Art Collection is a curated selection of artwork by Sheridan alumni, students, faculty and emeritus faculty. Works from the collection have been exhibited across our three campuses and is intended to foster and showcase Sheridan’s unique creative legacy.
The Faculty of Animation, Arts and Design is delighted to announce a series of new art acquisitions that are intended to build our growing permanent art collection. Many acquisitions were made as part of our new program of Dean’s Student Art Awards, selected from our students’ graduating art exhibits.
