MFA Studios and Gallery, 2201 1st Ave, Minneapolis

Please join us for an evening of art, music, and conversation with the 2017 graduating master of fine arts candidates at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.

Held at our bright and spacious new MFA gallery one block up from Mia, the exhibition is the result of a two-year interdisciplinary journey of intensive research and studio practice. It will feature works by nineteen artists and designers working in illustration, photography, painting, printmaking, sculpture, filmmaking, and graphic design. We invite you to meet the graduates and rub elbows with our vibrant community of supporters and friends.
