MFA Thesis Exhibition

The Masters of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition, takes place March 15 – April 7, 2010, in Gallery 307, Lamar Dodd School of Art.

Georgia Strange, Director of Lamar Dodd School of Art said of the students and the works “The 2010 class is rightfully beginning a new decade in the 21st century. This class is full of explorers who have journeyed to Italy, Costa Rica, Ghana, and Haiti to study and make art. They barely need us to visit their studios one more time or show them yet another artist to consider. THEY are showing US how to use social media and how to network in the yawning sea of immediate discourse. Looking back to 2007, the year they joined the community of artists and scholars in the Lamar Dodd School of Art, I wonder if I have grown as much in these three quick years.”

The student- generated art exhibition opened with a gala reception on Friday, March 19.

Happy Holidays from UGA Grad School!

The holiday season is upon us, and in order to celebrate it, the UGA Graduate School has put together a special holiday tree!

The tree, homed in the lobby of UGA’s Main Library, is not only a celebration of the holidays but also a celebration of the plethora of departments that make up the Grad School. Gracing the branches of our tree are ornaments with the name of the many departments that make up our beloved school, from Political Science to Banking and Finance to Mathematics and Science Education to Infectious Diseases!

Be sure to stop by and check out our holiday tree and see just how many departments our school has!

That’s not all! Remember to check back here in January as we kick off our “100 Years, 100 Ways to love UGA Grad School.” It’s going to be your new favorite blog!

We also want to give a big thank you to our Creative Consultants team that put this wonderful addition to UGA Grad School traditions together!
