Opening tomorrow Thursday, May 16th (6-10pm) is the California College of the Arts’ 2013 MFA Thesis Exhibition. The exhibition features works by 75 artists graduating this spring from CCA’s Graduate Program in Fine Arts. It unfolds throughout CCA’s San Francisco campus, giving visitors an opportunity to tour most of the college. The MFA Show will be a dynamic exhibition of work in a vast range of media. It is curated by faculty member and respected writer and art critic Glen Helfand, who notes, “CCA’s MFA Show is always a wonderful opportunity to introduce a new group of imaginative, innovative, emerging artists to the CCA and Bay Area communities. The exhibition runs through Saturday, May 25, 2013 (open daily, 10am-7 pm).
“This year the show is particularly rich in photographic works and immersive, media-based projects. It reflects a diverse range of interests and approaches, and will surely make for a highly engaging visitor experience.”
The MFA Show, its popular name, is part of a larger year-end celebration called Upstart that includes thesis exhibitions by all CCA graduate programs, the Baccalaureate Exhibition (May 16-21), featuring senior presentations by undergraduates, the Annual Fashion Show (May 17), and much more!
