The PennDesign Fine Arts Alumni Panel is organized by the undergraduate Fine Arts Program and Institute of Contemporary Art each Spring. The event is one aspect of the department’s programming that is designed to inform, engage and equip undergraduate fine arts majors with information about career opportunities and creative experiences after their time at Penn. The panel consists of alumni that work in a variety of professional fields and artistic disciplines: Kate Clayton, Sophie Elana Hodara, and Artie Vierkant; and will be moderated by Ken Lum, Professor and Director of Undergraduate Fine Arts.
