Thesis work achieves professional levels of achievement

The Master of Fine Arts Exhibition marks the culmination of a three year degree program in the visual arts. Students in the program focus on a particular area of study and complete a body of thesis work that emphasizes professional levels of conceptual, formal, and technical achievement in their chosen field – art work that is situated within the discourse of contemporary art practice.

This exhibition features examples from the thesis work of:

  • Kimberly Anderson
  • Nikki Arnell
  • Amber Drake
  • Joshua House
  • Bart Mills
  • Stefani Rossi
  • Stanley Scott
  • Douglas Sink
  • Farrell Tompkins
  • Sara Goldenberg White

This work attests to the vibrancy of the program and the visions of these emerging voices in the visual arts.
