MFA Thesis Exhibition and Performances

This exhibition features the unveiling of final thesis projects and performances by graduating students in the Interdisciplinary Arts Department. The projects, which include artists' books, works in handmade paper, printmedia, installations & sculpture, new media and time arts events are the culmination of one year of guided research. Each reflects the department’s dual focus on interdisciplinary book and paper arts and interdisciplinary arts and media. 

The exhibition is open to the public from May 2 through May 24. On May 15 and May 16 onsite performances will take place throughout the exhibition spaces on the 1st and 2nd floors.
