The Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis is pleased to announce the openings of A Thing Like You and Me: 2020 MFA in Visual Art Thesis Exhibition and smoke, signals, space: 2021 MFA in Visual Art Thesis Exhibition at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum.
These exhibitions reflect the critical conversations, interdisciplinary investigations, collective visions, and diverse practices of these two groups of artists.
