Running from 1:00-7:00pm at the Visual Arts Facility, UC San Diego artists will welcome the public into their studios. Open Studios is the annual pinnacle event for the MFA and Art Practice PhD students to share their artistic process and finished pieces. Visitors will be able to step inside approximately 50 artist studios and interact with the emerging talent on campus. Artists will be on site to contextualize their work and engage in conversations to deepen the viewer's understanding of their artistic practice.
In addition to the open studios, the department highlights the collaborative nature of the PhD program and the MFA program with an exhibition at the Visual Arts Facility Gallery. This exhibition explores the theme of “New Institutions” and will curated by PhD candidates Lara Bullock, Sascha Crasnow, and MFA candidate Elmira Mohebali.
