Thesis Exhibition

The Master’s Project culminates during the student’s last summer in residence with a presentation for the greater community. Students may either present their work as part of the annual Thesis Exhibition, or they may perform or screen pieces in a separate evening presentation. The exhibition takes place in our off-campus gallery in nearby Red Hook, while presentations occur in various on-campus facilities.
