In lieu of a written thesis, graduate students in the UW-Madison Art Department plan and carry out an exhibition of their work in a local gallery space. During their second year of study, students typically stage an exhibition in order to complete a Master of Arts degree. Students continuing on to pursue a Master of Fine Arts degree stage another exhibition the following year, with the goal of developing and refining their work during the intervening time.
This collection documents thesis exhibitions of UW-Madison Art Department students, 2008-2011. Starting up again in 2015, images from recent exhibitions will be added yearly. Over time the collection will grow to become a resource for students and faculty, and a venue for showcasing student work.
