The annual MFA exhibitions are the culminating event of our intensive graduate degree in studio practice. The MFA Thesis consists of a Thesis Exhibition, Thesis Paper and Oral Defense that jointly investigates a specific idea, theory, or set of questions. Graduate-level thesis work should create new knowledge or understanding as well as demonstrate the studentâ€™s mastery in a given area, marking her/his transition from apprentice to peer.
The exciting thesis exhibitions are part of a demanding course of study, production, and review. MFA candidates concurrently present new and engaging works that demonstrate each artistâ€™s caliber of ideas, skills, awareness of the global context within which art is created and circulated, and critically engaged artistic practice.
Gallery hours: M â€“ F, 10:00â€“4:00; Sun 12:00â€“4:00. Closed Sat.; Prince Kuhio Day, Mar. 26.
