The School of Art 2020 MFA Thesis Alumni Exhibition is proud to honor the achievements of their Master of Fine Arts graduates from 2020. During the last year of their coursework, graduates were poised to exhibit their thesis research when we were hit with campus closure because of the pandemic. As a result, these students missed out one of the most intrinsic components of their academic studies, presenting a fully developed body of work to the public in the form of an exhibition. Slowly as the world begins to open we are able to host these artists and reflect on the work they completed in those last months of their degree pursuits. Please join us in celebrating the School of Art's graduates in
the 2020 Alumni Exhibition.

FEATURING ARTISTS: Erin DiGiovanni, Zach Gotschalk, Mijoung Kim, Marisa Lewon, Dorsey Kaufmann, Martin Krafft, Elena Makansi, Leah Netsky, Jared Robison, Marina Shaltout, Kaitlyn Jo Smith, Alex Turner, Kenzie Wells

The public can enjoy the very best artworks created by our 2020 MFA alumni offered in 3D, 360-degree, virtual reality. Physically hung in the galleries, the exhibition is viewed virtually. Utilizing the 3D space capture program from Matterport, museum visitors have the opportunity to virtually ‘walk-through’ the different exhibitions and even view the exhibition in VR, which puts you “in the gallery.” Each piece of artwork has been carefully scanned to facilitate the new online medium and paired with the navigation aspect allows for great user experience.
