Yale School of Art hosts its annual MFA thesis exhibitions featuring work from all 2023 MFA degree candidates across the school’s four departments: painting/printmaking, sculpture, photography, and graphic design. The culmination of two years of intensive artistic development, the six exhibitions showcase the results of a studio-based education integrated within a broad pedagogical framework.

All thesis exhibitions and receptions are held in the school’s Green Hall Gallery at 1156 Chapel Street, New Haven.

Members of the public are invited into the galleries for our public receptions taking place on February 3, February 17, March 10, March 31, April 14, and April 29, 2023 all from 6pm–8pm. During regular operating hours the gallery is open only to the Yale Community and their invited accompanied guests.
