SOUTH BEND, IN.- Each year the Museum looks forward to the spring exhibition of thesis art projects created by seniors and graduate students within the Art, Art History & Design Department. These are often provocative and demonstrate a broad awareness of the themes and processes of contemporary art. Museum visitors - particularly trustees, parents, and other VIP guests - are often challenged and always intrigued by the aspiring graduates' creations. The artworks range from installations, videos, industrial and graphic design projects, to more traditional art forms such as paintings, drawings, photographs, prints, ceramics, and sculpture.
The Snite Museum of Art and the Department of Art, Art History & Design will host a reception at the Annual BFA/MFA Candidates Thesis Exhibition on Sunday, April 5 from 2 to 4:00pm.
The awards ceremony will begin at 3:00 pm in the Annenberg Auditorium including the 2009 Efroymson Family Fund Emerging Artist Awards. For the third consecutive year, these are made possible due to a $10,000 grant award from the Efroymson Family Fund, a Central Indiana Community Foundation Fund.
The event and exhibition are free and open to the public.
