Period & Style
In May 2009 Gallery Crawl interviewed five graduate students receiving Masters of Fine Arts degrees from Mills College in Oakland, California. All experiment with multiple mediums including sculpture, drawing, fiber arts, painting, and new media. In their thesis exhibition, collectively titled Young Americans, each student presented a body of work completed during the two-year MFA program. Located in East Oakland, Mills College's campus is an oasis of trees and Julia Morgan-designed architecture. Twelve graduate students are accepted to the program each year. Graduate thesis exhibitions are displayed at the Mills College Art Museum each spring.
