Langara's first Pop-Up Grad Gallery a big success

Langara's first ever Pop-Up Grad Gallery was a tremendous success. From April 11 to May 17, four different Creative Arts shows were on rotation in a temporary gallery in the main foyer of Langara's 'A' Building. Each exhibition, lasting for approximately one week, celebrated the creative talent of students in Design Formation, Fine Arts, Professional Photo-Imaging, and Publishing. The individual shows had opening night receptions which brought together students, teachers, parents, alumni, and industry professionals, amongst others.

"We have wanted to host a graduate student show on campus for a couple of years now,” said Julie Longo, Langara’s Dean of Arts. "The Pop-Up Gallery was a fun, collaborative project designed to create a constantly changing space where we could showcase and celebrate our talented creative arts grads. We are very proud of our students and we are excited to see where they will take their artistic careers."

Langara's Creative Arts are renowned for their hands-on learning, applied focus, and comprehensive training. Programs include Design Formation, Film Arts, Fine Arts, Journalism, Professional Photo-Imaging, Publishing, and Theatre Arts at Studio 58. For program details, please visit
