Student Showcase

Montserrat’s Student Showcase recognizes and honors the accomplishments of Montserrat students. The purpose of the event is to share the college’s creative spirit and to celebrate the hard academic and artistic work of our student body. Normally the event includes both visual and literary art forms for the enjoyment of the entire college community, the public, alumni, parents, and friends of Montserrat College of Art. Though the event itself has been rescheduled for the fall, the college’s academic departments wished to recognize and reward students for their accomplishments.
