Each year, graduating MFA students exhibit their best work. Work made for the MFA show expresses each student’s personal vision, goals, and advances in technique. The 2016 exhibition catalogue you see here opens with some examples of faculty work and then features highlights from the work of four students who completed their degree in the spring semester.
