Participating students include Ted Casper, Claire Ellsworth, Sara Gotlib, Yaaki Koesterich, Sarah Saraceno, Lindsey Scott, Melissa Schumacher, Brooke Starusnak, Garrett Stetson and Megan Williams.

The fall BFA exhibition runs concurrently with “Growing New Roots,” featuring the master’s thesis work of Edwin Acevedo and Matthew Rogers, through Dec. 20.
