The Masters of Fine Art 2017

Friday, May 19, 2017
GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- After working vigorously hard on not just creating art pieces, but creating a thesis through their metamorphosing art pieces, for the past three years, SF State’s 2017 Master of Fine Arts candidates opened their final art exhibit in the Fine Arts Gallery. The opening reception held a bittersweet beginning of the end for each master, who will miss their colleagues and professors, but are thrilled to begin their new journey in art. Mark Johnson, head curator and art professor, said he enjoys watching the entire art department’s growth, but to him this exhibit is always a special one. “I’ve seen then develop and grow from their first semester,” Johnson said. “I’m really proud to see it all come together.”
