While the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 interrupted the UAMA’s 50-year tradition of hosting the Master of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition, the Museum is proud to exhibit works by these now-alumni artists in 2021 along with the School of Art’s Joseph Gross and Lionel Rombach Galleries and the Center for Creative Photography. The works are hung in the galleries and accessible to the public virtually.

The MFA Exhibition is the culmination of the Master of Fine Arts Studio Degree and is normally presented during a graduate student’s final semester in the program. During the last year of their coursework, graduates work closely with faculty to develop a body of original art to present to the public in lieu of a written thesis. The end result offers visitors the opportunity to see new, cutting-edge art in a variety of mediums and styles.
