Additionally, Second- and Third-Year M.F.A. in Studio Art Exhibition Takes Place, June 30-July 10
Posted 05.31.11 by MICA communications
BALTIMORE--The summer thesis exhibition for the M.F.A. in Studio Art (MFAST) program will feature the work of 10 graduating artists from this unique low-residency program. Designed to expand understanding of contemporary art through research-based studio practice, this interdisciplinary program consists of four intensive six-week summer residencies combined with independent work during the academic year. Areas of concentration include the full range of contemporary art practices. Although the program promotes interdisciplinary approaches to art production, students are encouraged to work in ways most appropriate to their individual research.
The exhibition will include combinations of drawing, film, installation, painting, performance, photography, sculpture, sound and video.
Participating artists: Katya Chilingiri, Natalia González, Fritz Horstman, Cassandra Kapsos, Todd Keyser, Angela Lane, Juliana Parroni, Jassie Rios, Brooke Sturtevant-Sealover and Rebecca Zilinski
