alums Caleb Walker ’18, a graduate of the Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department‘s BA Program in Theatre, and Jordan Conrad, a graduate of the Theatre Department’s BA Program in Acting. Walker and Conrad perform in a work written by Walker, 11 Empty Frames, about an inexperienced art museum guide who leads the audience through a tour of art and their own experience therein.
