Alumni Opportunities

START Gallery provides a unique bridge between current Wake Forest University undergraduates and alumni. Every fall semester, the gallery hosts an alumni artist for a solo exhibition and, in the spring semester, the 5&Under program invites recent Wake Forest Art Department alumni who are 5 years out – or less – to exhibit their work and speak with current students.

Annual Alumnus Exhibition
Each year over Homecoming weekend START Gallery hosts an alumni artist to exhibit a solo exhibition. Chosen by the START Gallery Faculty Steering Committee and START Manager, this alumnus is also invited to give a lecture on his/her artwork and career path for the Wake Forest community.

5&Under

The 5&Under program invites recent Wake Forest Art Department alumni who are 5 years out – or less – to exhibit their work and speak with current students about their transition after graduation and developing a career in the arts. In an effort to connect students with alumni in art-related fields, we hope that this program offers our alumni unique opportunities to exhibit their work and gives students perspective into life after graduation from young and upcoming alumni connections.
