Adriana Poterash, Harper Alum

One of the best decisions of my life was to come to Harper College to start my long-awaited dream of getting an art degree. I was impressed by the quality of education, the high level and dedication of my teachers, the financial affordability of my new degree, and the support and opportunities this college offered.

Harper paved the road for me to be admitted to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago—my life's dream. I graduated from the SAIC in 2012 and, since then, I have been invited to numerous exhibitions worldwide, my work has been published in the United States and Europe, I have judged art competitions, and more. I started living my life true to myself.

Now, I am working in my own studio at the Noyes Art Center in Evanston. I continue exhibiting and teaching art to others. All these achievements I attribute to the beginning of my road at Harper College. You taught me right, gave me confidence and support, and I made many good friends whom I keep close in touch with after many years. Thank you, Harper!
