MFA Opening Reception 2019

April 16, 2020 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Please visit our Public Health page for closure updates.

Join us in celebrating the opening of the 2020 Master of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition! The reception is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served.

The MFA Thesis Exhibition is presented annually during the last semester of a graduate student’s process to complete the School of Art’s Master of Fine Arts Studio Degree. In lieu of a written thesis, the student must present a fully developed body of work to the public in the form of an exhibition.

During the last year of their coursework, graduates work closely with faculty to develop original art of which the character and reach of works being presented is determined by the graduate. This required component is the culmination of a three-year terminal degree program to pass and receive their Master of Fine Arts degree.
