Be Sure to Catch Otis College’s MFA Thesis Shows on View Now through May

Otis College MFA Fine Arts Thesis Shows Spring 2023
The second-year MFA Fine Arts candidates will be exhibiting their thesis projects in the College’s on-campus Bolsky Gallery.

Otis College’s second-year MFA Fine Arts candidates will be exhibiting their thesis shows starting this Sunday, January 23, through May, in the Bolsky Gallery on the Goldsmith campus at 9045 Lincoln Boulevard in Los Angeles. New shows will be installed weekly, and students will be available to discuss their work during in-person receptions. Find a full schedule below.

The MFA Fine Arts program at Otis is open, inclusive, and interdisciplinary, composed of advanced artists who are engaged and committed to exploring an art practice in its various forms, traditions, and contexts. The students have 24-hour access to work in their individual studios, which are now located on the Goldsmith campus following a move over the summer from their former studio space in Culver City. The thesis shows culminate the students’ public exhibition of their work after Annual Open Studios and a Mid-Residency Show, all of which takes place over the course of the two-year program. 

Below is the list of the students and their public exhibition and reception dates. Check back on our calendar of events for more information about each. Please visit MFA Fine Arts online for more information about the program.
