More than 40 student-artists from Columbia College Chicago’s three Interdisciplinary Arts graduate programs will open their studio doors for public viewing on December 4, 2014, from 6pm to 9pm. at 1104 S. Wabash Ave. in Chicago.

The Interdisciplinary Arts graduate programs are just three of the 14 graduate degree programs Columbia offers to students interested in pursuing the arts, media, education, the business of the arts and the application of the arts to healing.

“There is such a variety of lines of inquiry in the department — from students exploring performance and scent, the future of the book, media archaeologies, ancient aliens, the relationship between the cult of pop stars and Greek tragedy, and so much more,” says Justin Botz, a thesis student in the Interdisciplinary Arts and Media, MFA program. Botz and his classmates will share art that includes wearable sculptures, board games exploring illness, the Oculus Rift, e-textiles, and humanoid robots.

In addition to the event, Columbia College Chicago is now accepting applications for admission to its graduate programs in Interdisciplinary Arts, Arts Management, Cinema Arts + Science, Creative Arts Therapies, Creative Writing, Education, Journalism, Music Composition for the Screen, and Photography.
