MFA Thesis Exhibition 2016

Saturday, April 16, 2016, 6pm - 9pm

Admission to the opening reception is free to the public

UCR ARTSblock's Sweeney Art Gallery & Culver Center of the Arts present Master the annual MFA Thesis Exhibition with works by six graduating Master of Fine Arts students in UCR's Department of Art: Kate Alexandrite, David Burch, Hannah Greely, Joshua Holzmann, Hannah Karsen and Joshua West Smith.

These students join the ranks of Master of Fine Arts graduates from art departments and art schools across Southern California, a region that has become known for transforming its art students into major players on the international art scene. UCR's thesis exhibition is distinctive because it is the only graduate student exhibition in Southern California presented in an off-campus, public setting. The distinguished full-time faculty in UCR's Art Department includes Charles Long, John Divola, Jill Giegerich (Emeritus), Jim Isermann, Brandon Lattu, Yunhee Min, and Amir Zaki.

The exhibition is organized by UCR Department of Art and UCR ARTSblock. Support is provided by University of California, Riverside’s Department of Art and College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (CHASS).
