2024 PNCA MFA Thesis Exhibition Details Poster

The Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies at Pacific Northwest College of Art is thrilled to announce the 2024 MFA Thesis Exhibition!

The 2024 MFA Thesis Exhibition is a celebration marking the culmination of creative exploration, critical inquiry, and artistic innovation by the Master of Fine Arts candidates at the Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA). Over the course of two+ years, these 25 exceptional artists, designers, and makers have dedicated themselves to intensive research and experimentation resulting in a diverse and compelling array of works. This exhibition stands as a testament to the interdisciplinary ethos of PNCA, where boundaries between disciplines blur, and innovation flourishes at the crossroads of diverse creative practices. We invite you to immerse yourself in the visions and voices of these talented artists, to engage with their ideas, and to witness firsthand the transformative power of art, craft, and design.
