Ranging from flatpack material studies to alchemical experiments with bio-resin, USED, the senior review exhibition of CCA's Furniture Program, reexamines the roles of a diverse array of materials and processes.

Each student's select body of work explores a different facet of the way we experience furniture -- and the way materials are chosen, transformed, and elevated by makers today.

The Graduate Program in Fine Arts is proud to present the 2014 MFA Thesis Exhibition. The program has an interdisciplinary orientation that supports both the crossing and merging of mediums as well as the investigation and use of content from diverse areas of thought.

Our MFA in Fine Arts program stimulates students to hone their skills and expand their ideas through a critically engaged artistic practice, while providing them with a greater awareness of the global context within which contemporary art is made and circulated.

This exciting exhibition is the culmination of a demanding course of study, production, and review.

We welcome you to witness the results and join us in congratulating the graduating class of 2014.

(Please note: On Thursday, May 15, the exhibition does not open to the public until the reception begins at 6 p.m.)
