MFA in Studio Art Thesis Exhibition

Reception: Friday, July 13, 6:00-8:00 pm
The summer's thesis exhibition for the MFA in Studio Art program will feature the work of nine graduating artists from this unique low-residency program. Designed to expand understanding of contemporary art through research-based studio practice, this interdisciplinary program consists of four intensive six-week summer residencies combined with independent work during the academic year. Areas of concentration include the full range of contemporary art practices. Although the program promotes interdisciplinary approaches to art production, students are encouraged to work in ways most appropriate to their individual research.
