People crowded into the S.A.L. Gallery on the main floor of the library April 3 as the digital art and design program presented the BFA Senior Exhibition. The exhibition ran from April 3-10 and is the culminating event for the show’s six students: Daniel Puntormo, Tyler Maher, Rebecca Kane, Nicole Comito, Lauren Palumbo and Andi Silverman; as they displayed the products of their four years in the program.

An array of pieces lined the walls, from digital illustrations to hand-cut and crafted chocolate boxes. The work displayed highlighted the depth of skills that the seniors had the opportunity to learn. “We did everything from 3D to video, to web, to print to app design,” Silverman said.

Puntormo shared his work with his friends and family, reflecting on his years at Post. “It [the art displayed] shows the end of my college career, what I’ve become,” he said, “I’ve started from garbage, and now I have all of this work that I can get out and get a job with.”

Maher (18’) decided to come back to show his work alongside his peers. Currently working in real estate, Maher plans on using his art work to delve further into the world of advertising. “Right now I’ve been focusing on my real estate job, but I do have a couple of interviews lined up, I’m hoping to get a job in the city somewhere in advertising or packaging,” he said.

This is the first time all six of the seniors have displayed their work in a gallery setting. The room buzzed with proud parents, professors and friends. The artists spoke of how incredible it was sharing the gallery with their classmates.

“It was really exciting because I get to do it with a lot of people I came in with, we all came in together, and so we all get to hang our stuff up together,” Palumbo said. “It’s really cool to see it all together, and see how far everyone’s come.”

Palumbo agreed that her best memories of her time on campus have been alongside her classmates. “We’re like a family. The professors are so nice and helpful with everything, so I’ve had a great experience in this program overall, it’s really been so amazing,” she said.

As for the artists’ future goals, they look forward to furthering their craft and getting hired within the field. Puntormo summarized the feeling of seniors across all departments as graduation looms, “I don’t wanna be broke,” he said
