Each year, the Henry presents the University of Washington’s School of Art + Art History + Design’s Master of Fine Arts and Master of Design thesis exhibition. Throughout their program, students consult with academic advisers and working artists to develop advanced techniques, expand concepts, and discuss critical issues. They emerge with a vision and direction for their own work, which is embodied in the pieces they have chosen to present.
The exhibition features the work of:
Paul Baughman, Benjamin Dunn, Chad P. Hall, Jaewon Hwang, Benjamin Gale-Schreck, Geoff Gray, Catherine Lim, Anna Mlasowsky, Heather Nibert, Bryan Allen Robertson, Joe Sparano, Sarah Skwira, Erin Elizabeth Wilson, and Ellen (Jing) Xu.
