Monster: MFA Thesis Exibition 2014

Sweeney Art Gallery

April 12 - May 3

Reception - Saturday, April 12, 2014, 6pm - 9pm



UCR ARTSblock's Sweeney Art Gallery & Culver Center of the Arts present the annual "MFA Thesis Exhibition 2014" with works by three graduating Master of Fine Arts students in UCR's Department of Art: Chelsea Rector, Michael Shroads, and BANBAN.


These students join the ranks of Master of Fine Arts graduates from art departments and art schools across Southern California, a region that has become known for transforming its art students into major players on the international art scene. UCR's thesis exhibition is distinctive because it is the only graduate student exhibition in Southern California presented in an off-campus, public setting. The distinguished full-time faculty in UCR's Art Department includes Charles Long, John Divola, Jill Giegerich, Jim Isermann, Brandon Lattu, Yunhee Min, Erika Suderburg, and Amir Zaki.


The exhibition is organized by UCR Department of Art and UCR ARTSblock. Support is provided by University of California, Riverside’s Department of Art and College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (CHASS).
