Fri 3/16   -   Bernard's MFA Thesis Show from 8-11pm

Later in the semester after break I generally announce that there is extra credit offered by attending MFA shows and doing a brief write up. Since my show is before break, and it would be nice to see some of you attend, I thought I might as well initially announce it now. There will be varying levels of points up for grabs, and I will have a hard copy of guidelines after break, but in general you must attend the opening event, take some photos to document. You will be required to do a short write up that will talk about the artists work(s) and overall show theme. Ideally you will want to speak with the artist, but if they are very busy you may take images of statements and title cards as reference for your write up.
