Boston Young Contemporaries, also known as the BYC, not to be confused with PYT (I always think this when hearing about the BYC), is a show of post-bacc and MFA students at New England area schools.
Including and limited to:
-School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
-University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth
-The Art Institute of Boston
-Massachusetts College of Art and Design
-University of Massachusetts, Amherst
-Johnson State College
-University of New Hampshire
-Union Institute and University, New Hampshire
-Rhode Island School of Design
-Maine College of Art
This was started by students at Boston University to "provide an arena for New England MFA candidates to display their work and promote themselves within the Boston community as well as the greater artist community." I have a few friends who are in this show, Owen Rundquist, being one of them (check out his work!).
If you are in the area, you should stop by and check this show out, there is a lot of work, almost 100 artists, in this HUGE gallery. It is up July 18th to August 22nd at 808 Commonwealth Gallery at Boston University. The opening reception is July 18th from 6-9pm.
We should start a PYC, and it will be even closer to PYT! Anyone interested? We just need to find a gallery big enough.
