About the Grant Program

BFA Thesis Gallery

When the University closed in response to COVID-19, CCA turned its attention to assisting senior undergraduate artists left stranded away from their departmental studios at the end of their Cornell careers. CCA has collaborated with the Department of Art on mounting the 2020 and 2021 BFA Thesis Galleries.

Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫ' land acknowledgment for the Ithaca campus:

Cornell University is located on the traditional homelands of the Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫ’ (the Cayuga Nation). The Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫ’ are members of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, an alliance of six sovereign Nations with a historic and contemporary presence on this land. The Confederacy precedes the establishment of Cornell University, New York state, and the United States of America. We acknowledge the painful history of Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫ’ dispossession, and honor the ongoing connection of Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫ’ people, past and present, to these lands and waters.
