Attending the MFA show at one of the Bay Area's large art schools is like getting bludgeoned by art. After about a half-dozen presentations I am full, my critical faculties have been short-circuited and I have been forced into submission. Think about it, at any given group show, you might see one or two pieces from (at the most) twenty artists. Or on any Art Murmur or First Thursday outing, you might visit five or ten solo shows. Now imagine seeing the fully articulated visions of 75 brand new artists all gathered into one place; that's the 2013 California College of the Arts MFA experience.
