The 2004-05 year-end events continue this week with a pair of departmental exhibitions from the College’s masters-degree programs. The MFA Design Department presents “Designer as Author,” a thesis exhibition comprised of products of value, created with the needs and wants of society in mind; and “MFA Illustration as Visual Essay: Selected Works from Thesis Projects,” curated by printmaker, cartoonist, painter and faculty member David Sandlin, features work ranging from watercolors and silkscreen posters to children’s books and graphic novels. Both exhibitions will be on display at the Visual Arts Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, Suite 1502, May 12 – 28; there will be a reception for the artists on Thursday, May 12, 6 – 8pm.
Also be sure to mark your calendar for two more upcoming masters-thesis exhibitions: The MFA Computer Art Department’s thesis show takes place at the Visual Arts Gallery June 3 – 18, and the MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department will be displaying thesis projects in the gallery July 15 – 30.
