MFA Thesis Award

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 B’more Art, served as the juror for the 2018 award.
