PULLMAN, Wash. – Thesis works by master of fine arts graduate candidates at Washington State University will be on exhibit April 10-May 9 at the Museum of Art/WSU. A free, public gallery opening and reception for WSU Mom’s Weekend will be at 6 p.m. Friday, April 10.

MFA candidate Jade Lowder.

“Our overarching goal is to support creativity and innovation in students who seek out divergent opinions and examine complex issues from a variety of perspectives,” said Chris Bruce, director of the museum. “Exposing our audience to the culmination of two or more years of work from our graduate candidates enriches community life by providing meaningful encounters with this creativity and innovation.”

Interviews and photos of the 2015 master of fine arts candidates – Sam Cannard, Zachary Kolden, Kevin Leiter, Jade Lowder, Phillip Mudd and Noelle Pflanz – can be found on Facebook at

The museum is on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium in the Fine Arts Center on the WSU Pullman campus. Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Saturday, open until 7 p.m. Thursday. Learn more at or contact the museum at 509-335-1910.
