Carrying on a tradition since 1970, seven graduate students from the University of Arizona School of Art are presenting their work in the 2024 Master of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition in partnership with the University of Arizona Museum of Art.

The exhibition Leaving to Arrive, with installations in UAMA and the school’s Joseph Gross Gallery, features artists Jacqueline Arias, Nathan Cordova, Drew Grella, Hanan Khatoun, Tessa Laslo, Anita Maksimiuk and Dana Smith. See their work.

During the last year of their coursework, MFA candidates work closely with faculty to develop a body of original art to present to the public in lieu of a written thesis. The end result offers visitors the opportunity to see new, cutting-edge art in a variety of mediums and styles.

The University of Arizona School of Art offers students the unique opportunity to work with world-renowned faculty in a multidisciplinary environment within a prominent R-1 research institution. We inspire students to broaden their perspectives and focus their passion to create work that realizes their human potential.
