There is probably no happier show in any artist’s career than a celebratory exit show. Graduating Artists is an assembly of solo exhibitions by those students who are attaining their BFA degrees after arduous yet productive studio work at Florida State University. With no restrictions on scale or media, the student showcase is a joyous adventure brought to MoFA by young professionals launching into their futures.
The Bachelor of Fine Arts classmates of 1996 faced a brave new world beyond the University, and all of them met their challenges with the creativity they learned or invented during their degree programs. Assemblage is a diverse installation that catches up with the work of five members of a graduating class twenty years ago.
“Road Trip” gathers together thematic imagery of highways, maps, and roadside diners from the MoFA Permanent Collection.
