First Friday Reception on April 7, 2023 from 5:00 – 8:00 pm.

The Class of 2023 MFA cohort took the initiative to partner with the South Bend Museum of Art on their thesis exhibitions in addition to their standard degree requirements. On top of an already rigorous program of study, research, and fabrication, MFA students coordinated all aspects of their exhibitions with staff at the South Bend Museum of Art over the course of a year and a half. The South Bend Museum is proud to partner with the MFA students and the Department of Art, Art History and Design on the 2023 MFA Thesis Exhibition.
