MFA Thesis Exhibition | 2013 | Maryland Institute College of Art
Friday, June 28 – Saturday, July 13

Fox Building: Decker and Meyerhoff galleries, 1303 W. Mount Royal Ave.; The Graduate Studio Center: Sheila & Richard Riggs and Leidy galleries at 131 W. North Ave.

Reception: Friday, July 12, 6–8 pm

The summer thesis exhibition for the MFA in Studio Art at The Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) will feature the work of 10 graduating artists: Katrina Bello, Tamara Cedre, Emily Harris, Jeff Hensley, Brendan Hughes, Sarah Koljonen, Dan Lovallo, Tobin Rothlein, Jonathan Taylor, and Davin Watne.

This interdisciplinary low-residency program is designed to expand understanding of contemporary art through critical studies and research-based studio practice.

The class of 2013 . . . take on non-artistic techniques in order to break through the space that conventional mediums once held in their own singular way and signal a massive shift towards a contemporaneity in which everything and anything can be used as a material or proposition towards the making of art.

Todd Keyser, Assistant Director, Gross McCleaf Gallery
