2019 MFA Candidates Thesis Exhibition

2019 MFA Candidates Thesis Exhibition

O’Shaughnessy West Galleries Saturday, April 6 through Saturday, May 18, 2019

This annual exhibition is comprised of the culminating thesis projects created by the students graduating with an MFA degree from the University of Notre Dame Department of Art, Art History & Design.

It is typically provocative and demonstrates a broad awareness of the themes and processes of contemporary art. Museum visitors are often challenged and always intrigued by the aspiring graduates' creations which range from industrial and graphic design projects, videos, and complex multi-media installations, to more traditional art forms such as paintings, photographs, prints, ceramics, and sculpture.

The six 2019 MFA candidates are: Jen Dwyer, Ceramics; Hannah K. Freeman, Painting: Steven Lemke, Sculpture: Melonie Mulkey, Photography; Shreejan Shrestha, Industrial Design; and Heather Tucker, Visual Communication Design.
