2021 MFA Thesis Exhibition

The Master of Fine Arts 2021 graduates at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design invite you to our Thesis Exhibition. This is the culminating exhibition by our 2021 thesis candidates who have spent the past year on their research, making work and developing each of their unique ideas into a final gallery show.

This year our candidates explore a vast array of ideas through a multitude of media including installation, video, illustration, sculpture, interdisciplinary practice, and multimedia. This event is free and open to the public. Masks and 6′ physical distancing required at all times. Gallery hours are Saturday and Sunday, 2:00pm-6:00pm. Please see our online appointment form for complete hours.
