The Washington State University Museum of Art is excited to share the talents of MFA graduate candidates in our upcoming Master of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition, April 10 – May 9, 2015. Gallery opening and reception begin at 6:00 p.m. Friday, April 10 in the Museum of Art/WSU.

The exhibition is organized by our curators Zach Mazur and Ryan Hardesty who’ve said, “This exhibition provides a wide range of styles and stimulating experiences for faculty, students and local museum constituents. The world-class faculty at WSU encourage the MFA candidates to become more assured and articulate in their convictions. We confidently present this year’s graduate thesis work in hopes that undergraduate students, first year graduate students and anyone willing to be moved by art while spending time at WSU will find it a fun and stimulating experience.”

The Museum of Art is committed to the idea that a museum has a responsibility to recognize the creative talent of its region. Chris Bruce, Director of the museum adds, “Exposing our audience to the culmination of two or more years work from our graduate candidates enriches the community life of Washington State University by providing meaningful encounters with creativity and innovation. Our over-arching goal is to support creativity and innovation in students who can seek out divergent opinions, examine complex issues from a variety of perspectives and find meaning in the world.”
