PULLMAN – The WSU Museum of Art will present the Master of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition, with its opening reception starting at 6 p.m. April 8 and the exhibit ending May 7.

The free exhibit, organized by Museum of Art curator Keith Wells, will display the talents of graduate candidates for master’s degrees in the fine arts.
Gallery hours are Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., with extended hours until 7 p.m. on Thursdays. The museum is closed on Sundays.
“This is the perfect exhibition for Mom’s Weekend,” Wells said. “The work is usually as diverse in medium as it is in subject matter. The world class faculty at WSU encourage the MFA candidates to become more confident and articulate in their own convictions.”

“Exposing our audience to the culmination of two or more years work from our graduate candidates enriches the community life of Washington State University by providing meaningful encounters with creativity and innovation,” said Chris Bruce, director of the museum. “Our over-arching goal is to create life-long learners who can seek out divergent opinions, examine complex issues from a variety of perspectives and find meaning in the world.”
