The BFA Thesis exhibitions are exciting for our students, as they signal at once both the completion of a major life’s accomplishment, while prompting the start of an independent creative practice. As students in the School of Art and Design at Texas State prepare to graduate, their BFA Thesis Exhibitions act as a fulcrum of sorts—a point of transition.

In the fall semester, thesis students will exhibit their works in three shows over a three-week period, featuring a survey of works from all of the School of Art and Design’s Studio disciplines: painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, metals, ceramics, photography, new media, and art education.

Each student earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) from the School of Art and Design Studio curriculum is required to exhibit artworks that are generated in their final two Thesis semesters. Entirely conceived, designed, and installed by the thesis students, this exhibition highlights selections from those bodies of work.
