The 2016 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 Rachel Allen, Samuel Bennett, Rebekah Blesing, David Johnson, C. Harold Perkins, Bruce Stepan, Adam Taylor, and Joe Wilkinson, 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 guest juror Lynne Warren, Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
We are excited for the 2016 Masters of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition scheduled to open April 22, 2016 at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University. The Exhibition will be on view April 22, 2016 - May 15, 2016.
