MFA Open Studios and Department Day


Location: Riley Hall

First and second-year MFA students will have open studios in Riley Hall from 10:30 am to 4:00 pm. The guest critic is Craig Drennen, an American artist based in Atlanta, Georgia.

Drennen is best known for his ongoing long-term Timon of Athens project, for which he has produced paintings, drawings, prints, videos, performances, sculptures. His work shows technical agility across a wide range of influences that spans abstraction, representation, and conceptual practices. In a catalog essay, the curator Diana Nawi writes that Drennen's "…multifaceted, dense, and ambitious practice suggests a world of meaning defined by symbols that emerge in different media and coalesce across projects."

All studio and design classes are canceled in celebration of Department Day/MFA Open Studios.

Free and open to the public.
