PULLMAN, Wash. — The Washington State University Museum of Art opens its annual Fine Arts Graduate Thesis Exhibition with a reception at 7:30 p.m. Monday, April 5, in the Fine Arts Center lobby.
The exhibit features work by WSU artists who are earning their master of fine arts degrees: Jessie Bukrey, Mitch Cope, Hasaan Kirkland, Peggy Sue McRae, Liz Obert and Marc Steine. Their works range from a mixed-media installation to sculpture, painting and photography.
“This year’s exhibition is not unlike past MFA shows in that it continues our tradition of diversity, displaying a wide range of media and subject matter,” said Christopher Watts, chair of the WSU fine arts department. “The exhibition is an opportunity to see why U.S. News and World Report recently ranked our fine arts graduate program as one of the nation’s best.”
The exhibition continues through May 8 and is open Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; Tuesday, 10 a.m.-10 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday 1-5 p.m. The museum will be open for Mom’s Weekend on April 17, and for Commencement,
May 8. All events at the museum are open to the public without charge. In addition, the museum is wheelchair accessible.
Funding for exhibitions and programs is provided by WSU and the Friends of the Museum of Art. A portion of the museum’s general operating funds for the fiscal year has been provided through a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, a federal agency that offers operating support to the nation’s museums.
