Open Studios is an opportunity for the public to explore the creative studios of artists in the MFA program. These students are working in ceramics, painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography and social practice. Visitors will have the chance to see developing artworks in progress, to ask questions about processes and ideas and to make personal connections with artists whose work moves them.

Raffle tickets will be sold for artworks donated by MFA candidates. The raffle raises funds for upcoming thesis exhibitions in the spring.
