The 2018 Master of Fine Arts Exhibition marks the culmination of a three-year degree program in the Department of Art, Art History, and Design emphasizing extensive creative exploration under the supervision of a faculty guidance committee. Focused study in an area of concentration, as well as course work in art history and related fields, helps artists situate their work within the larger discourse that characterizes the practice of art and design today. The creative research of Jazzmyn Barbosa, Laura Baszynski, and Liz Luna stands as evidence of their achievements and promise.
This year the annual Master of Fine Arts Prize will be awarded to an outstanding candidate by guest juror Nabila Abdel Nabi, Assistant Curator at the Power Plant, Toronto.
The 2018 Master of Fine Arts Exhibition is organized by the MSU Department of Art, Art History, and Design and the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University, with curatorial oversight by Georgia Erger, Curatorial Assistant. Support for this exhibition is provided by the Graduate School at MSU and the John and Susan Berding Family Endowment.
