Finalist Bachelor of Fine Art students 2021-2024 showcased their work spanning their academic journey while on the program in the exhibition held at the Makerere Art Gallery/Institute of Heritage Conservation and Restoration from 14th to  30th June 2024.

The “Best of Me” exhibition is a culmination of the tireless dedication and exceptional talent of the final-year students. The exhibition marked the end of their Bachelor of Industrial and Fine Arts program at Makerere University and the beginning of professional artistic careers.

The unique collection, spanning an impressive array of course units, marked the end of an era and the beginning of countless artistic journeys. Each piece in the exhibition was a testament to the dedication, talent, and diverse skill set of remarkable students, who exhibited a mastery of the intricate arts of photography, painting, structural textile, applied textile, sculpture, ceramics, drawing, fashion design, illustration, communication design, and advertising design, weaving, and much more.

The exploration of the exhibition was an encounter with a vast spectrum of sizes, materials, and functionalities, each thoughtfully chosen to enhance the themes conveyed. The works delved into a rich tapestry of subjects, reflecting the depth and breadth of the artists’ inspirations and experiences. From the vibrant celebration of cultural heritage to the nuanced explorations of womanhood and parenthood, the artworks offered profound insights into education, play, health, climate action, mental health awareness, weather, social-economic development, justice, crime, politics, and urbanization.

“The Best of Me” was not just an exhibition; it was a narrative of passion, resilience, and the transformative power of art. It was a tribute to the students’ journey, encapsulating their growth, learning, and the exceptional creativity that they honed over the years.
