Jordan Schnitzer Museum presents 2023 MFA Thesis Exhibition

PULLMAN, WA. –The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU will present the 2023 MFA Thesis Exhibition from March 28–May 6. The exhibition by MFA candidates will also feature talks given by each of the artists for 2023 Spring Family Weekend from 3–4 p.m. on Friday, March 31. 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 several 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: Shanda L. Stinebaugh, Adam Stuart, Sean Sullivan, and Allen Vu.

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. to 4 p.m.
