PCA&D’s 10th annual Senior Show & Celebration

June 6, 2013

On May 3 from 5 – 9 p.m., the Class of 2013 filled five floors of the college – over 60,000 square feet – with senior thesis projects. Over 2000 people joined us for art, live music, family and friends, and the celebratory spirit that makes our Senior Show & Celebration unique in the community.

Works included represented various media from all majors, including animation and motion graphics, wearable art, graphic design, photography, illustration, painting, 3D works, printmaking, and more. Many items were sold.

The 2014 Senior Show & Celebration will be held on May 2, 2014. Watch and for details as they evolve.


Lisa DeAngelo '13 designed the 2013 event logo.

PCA&D welcomed WITF, central Pennsylvania’s public broadcasting station, as media sponsor of the Senior Show & Celebration.

Here’s how it played out on May 3.

From 4 – 5 p.m.: Private preview for the families of the seniors.

Then at 5 p.m., upper floors of the college and Main Gallery will open to the public.

At 8 p.m., upper floors close and only the Main Gallery and atrium will remain open until 9 p.m. as Lancaster’s First Friday continues.
