Self-Generated: MFA 2nd year Fall Exhibition

In conjunction with the photography exhibition in Addams Gallery, PennDesign MFA 2nd year students will host an exhibition of their work in the Upper Meyerson Gallery. This is an unusual exhibition in that all of the work will generate its own illumination. Expect to see Sculpture, Photography, Painting and Video self-lit by industrious artistic imaginations. In order to raise money for our end of year thesis exhibition, most of the work will be available for sale. Antonio McAfee, Tia Simone-Gardner, and Jessa McFarlane (all MFA 2nd years) organized the show and decided on the curatorial direction. This will be an exciting start to the school year .... Come One, Come All!

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 4th 5pm-8pm
Exhibition Dates: September 3rd-12th, 2008
