It is with great pleasure that I present the Masters of Fine Art Candidates Thesis Exhibition to the academic and regional community at Florida State University. These artists represent the great diversity and strength of our graduate program and reflect three years of intensive research, focus and hard work culminating in exciting contemporary art works.
The work they have accomplished over the past three years has been filled with in-depth discussions, long hours of physical work and consistent hard questions being asked by faculty, who consistently pushed them forward onto new terrain. These artists are poised for success, equipped with a heightened sense of critical thinking and readied for a professional life in the arts.
Congratulations to all of you, as well as the faculty who have contributed through hours of mentoring and to their peers who have helped form a strong and robust support system. In addition, I thank the many visiting artists, staff and administrators in the College of Visual Arts, Theatre and Dance who helped make this yet, another successful graduating class.
