The thesis work of students receiving graduate degrees from Hunter College’s MFA program will be presented as part of Hunter College’s Fall 2014 Graduate Thesis Exhibition at the new MFA campus at 205 Hudson Street. This exhibition will include work of graduate students in Combined Media, Painting, Works on Paper, Photography and Sculpture. The work selected represents the culmination of each student’s unique experience in Hunter College’s prestigious and competitive MFA program.
Join us for part one of the Hunter College Fall 2014 Thesis Exhibition opening Thursday, November 6, 6–8pm. The exhibition will feature works by nine graduating artists: Alejandro Almanza, Marissa Bluestone, Sebastian Carrasco, Abelardo Cruz, Chris Charbonneau, Reiko Hamano, Shellyne Rodriguez, Jordon Schranz, and Zach Trow.
The Hunter College MFA in Studio Art is a three-year program designed to offer broad opportunities for artists to develop their work and an ongoing studio practice in an environment that encourages experimentation, production, and critical dialogue. MFA students work with Hunter's exceptional full-time faculty both individually in tutorials and in small seminars focusing on student work and contemporary practice, as well as in classes in the theory, criticism and history of art. In addition, many artists, curators, critics, and historians are invited to meet with students.
Hunter's new MFA facility at the corner of Hudson and Canal in Tribeca in Manhattan offers students and faculty exceptional access to intellectual, cultural, and creative resources. Our presence in the middle of New York's art world is crucial to our educational goal: the development of professional artists capable of continued growth once they leave the relatively structured graduate school environment. Studio space is available for all matriculated graduate students in the building at 205 Hudson Street, and students are required to maintain a studio and work in the building throughout their residency. Facilities include a woodshop, a metal shop, clay studio, printmaking studio, computer lab, audio and video editing facilities, black-and-white and color photo darkrooms, a flexible performance space, and a 5,000-square-foot gallery, which houses the MFA thesis shows each semester in addition to exhibitions curated by Hunter College faculty and curatorial staff.
