MFA Thesis Award
At our graduate review day event today, Mina Cheon (IMDA ’02), presented the first MFA Thesis Award to graduating IMDA student Parastoo Aslanbeik. This fund was founded and inspired by Mina, and the IMDA program is especially grateful for her leadership and generosity. Each year, one graduating IMDA MFA student will be awarded $1000 for the most outstanding thesis exhibition and written thesis. Cara Ober, artist and editor of BmoreArt, served as juror.
The Intermedia + Digital Arts MFA program is committed to emerging practices that pose unique conceptual and social challenges. Graduate students are provided with newly retrofitted downtown Baltimore studios, state-of-the-art labs; close relationships with active faculty; prestigious visiting artists and scholars; exhibitions opportunities; Baltimore’s vibrant art scene; and competitive Research Assistantships for applicants who qualify. For more information or a tour, please contact our graduate program director Lisa Moren.
