PULLMAN, Wash. – The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU is proud to present the 2022 MFA Thesis Exhibition, Opening Reception, and Artist Talks. The thesis exhibition by MFA candidates will be on view from March 29–May 7, with talks given by each of the artists for Family Weekend on April 1, from 3–4 p.m. An opening reception follows the talks in the museum galleries from 4-6 p.m. All events are free and open to the public.

The MFA Thesis Exhibition is an annual showcase culminating two or more years work by the Master of Fine Arts graduate candidates. With its wide range of art-making approaches, the thesis exhibition provides a stimulating experience for faculty, students, and museum visitors. This year’s MFA thesis graduate candidates are: Sarah Barnett, Jaime Durham, Autumn Hunnicutt, Seo Ryung Park, Siri Stensberg, and Meagan Marsh Pine.

Traveling from many places to join the cohort at WSU, these student-artists have engaged in an intense interdisciplinary studio program. They met regularly with faculty members for group and individual critiques.

Visiting artists and scholars provided diverse one-on-one insight into their creative work. Each artist sharpened their confidence, convictions, and skills. Their MFA Thesis Exhibition is a focused conclusion, yet it also marks an exciting transition toward their professional careers. Museum exhibitions and events are always free and open to the public.

Organized by the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU. Funding for this exhibition is provided by the Samuel H. and Patricia W. Smith Endowment and members of the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU.


LOCATION | The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU is located in the Crimson Cube (on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium and the CUB) on the WSU Pullman campus. Hours are Tuesday through Friday, 1–4 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
