The MFA Biennial celebrates the rigorous efforts of Illinois State University’s Master of Fine Arts program. Providing our extended community a wonderful opportunity to experience contemporary art created in Bloomington-Normal, the exhibition highlights selected work by the 17 students currently enrolled in the program. Steeped in current issues within the field as well as historical traditions, these students adhere to standards of excellence in order to achieve mastery in their individual studio practices.
