2021 CFA Convocation


With all the gratitude for and excitement about our graduates — even in this most odd of years — we welcome you to the 2021 CFA Convocation Celebration where those who want to can be safely in person and live at Rice-Eccles Stadium (details below) or anytime, anywhere for our complete (and beautiful) virtual celebration!

We look forward to simpler times, and we appreciate what each our students, faculty and staff members did to creatively solve the problems this last year presented. You make us proud.

It is our great pleasure to present the 2021 Outstanding Seniors from the University of Utah College of Fine Arts. Each year, our five academic units nominate an outstanding senior for their academic achievements, artistic and scholarly accomplishments, and ongoing commitment to their craft. These graduating students continue the CFA's tradition of sending strong creative leaders out into the art world. Congratulations, we can't wait to see how and what you achieve next!
