MISSION


ShopColumbia, Columbia College Chicago's student and alumni art boutique features original designs created and inspired by Columbia artists. Spanning all media and disciplines, ShopColumbia is defined by what Columbia students are making right now.  An extension of the classroom and a laboratory for experimentation, the store supports students by providing a professional environment to learn the process of marketing and selling work and a vibrant venue for earning income.
 


THE HISTORY


The Department of Exhibitions, Performance and Student Spaces (DEPS)  opened ShopColumbia on October 16, 2008 to provide students a commercial venue for showcasing and selling their work.  Since opening, ShopColumbia artists have earned over $250,000 from the sale of their work.
