The 2017 Master of Fine Arts Exhibition marks the culmination of a three-year degree program that emphasizes extensive creative exploration under the supervision of a faculty guidance committee. Focused study in an area of concentration, as well as course work in art history and related fields, helps artists situate their work within the larger discourse that characterizes the practice of art and design today. The creative research of Ladan Bahmani, Kristen Franyutti, Elyse Gambino, Jordan Smith, and Chelsea Young stands as evidence of their achievements and promise.
This year the annual Master of Fine Arts Prize will be awarded to an outstanding candidate by a guest juror.
We are excited for the 2017 Masters of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition scheduled to open March 17, 2017 at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University. The Exhibition will be on view March 17, 2016 - April 2, 2017. This year we will be hosting a closing reception on Saturday, April 1 from 6:30-8:30PM.
