See the work of emerging artists and designers at the CCAD MFA & MDes Thesis Exhibition. For the first time, the show will include strategic and service design projects from MDes candidates. MFA candidate work spans a number of different media and genres, such as painting, sculpture, photography, design, video, illustration, and animation. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
