MFA Thesis Exhibition

There are several standouts among the 22 works on view. Step into the courtyard to appreciate Lisa Rickey's stainless steel pillows. Hanita Schwartz has created a big yellow box with multiple eyepieces and viewing positions; stare through one peephole, and your eye appears enlarged and reflected on the opposite side for others to see. Sun Ren obsessively paints The Revelation of the Himalayas at appropriately large scale. Materials range from milk cartons to salt and milk, from a Heineken beer label (folded very small) to old laundry (folded and stacked into a huge tower). Gary Carpenter has assembled a giant ball out of tree bark, which would seem equally strange in a forest. Among the graphic design students, there are several charts and maps, including one following the wandering "Nickelsville" homeless encampment. BRIAN MILLER
