Milked AU Studio Art MFA Thesis Exhibition, 2020 Graduates

This exhibition is featured in our Museum@Home.

Milked encompasses a shared feeling of disruption and disinterest through a pandemic, moments of political upheaval and social unrest, and ultimately demonstrates the artists’ persistence to remain creative. 2020 MFA graduates interrupted during their final semester reconvene to see how ideas around their work have changed (if at all), and how it fits into what they are doing a year later. Although their creative juices have been fully milked, the show must go on.

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for story features on each artist beginning on March 19th.
