Students crowd Artist Exchange info session at Portfolio Center – The Columbia Chronicle: Campus
Homeroom, a Chicago-based nonprofit resource that aids artists in developing, producing and showcasing original art, is partnering with the Portfolio Center to recruit students for the Emerging and Established Artists Exchange.
Homeroom created the program with the help of the college’s Portfolio Center, pairing students with professional Chicago artists to develop original work and promote it to professionals within their industries. Homeroom will be accepting applications from student artists through Oct. 20.
Rob Funderburk, the creative industry liaison for the Portfolio Center, said events like these are ideal for Columbia students and his department because it allows students to gain an early foothold in the industries they wish to pursue.
