The artists and designers of the Class of 2020 at the University of Houston School of Art spent three intense years developing their work anticipating the Masters of Fine Arts thesis exhibition, only to have the exhibition cancelled due to the pandemic.

MFA "Moving Forward" is taking place a little more than a year after the original date for their exhibition, and it will give visitors an opportunity to see a range of work made during the three years at the university, as well as many works created during the past year as these artists and designers have emerged into Houston’s vibrant culture scene.

Artists included in exhibition:

  • Qindeel Butt
  • Daniel Calderon
  • Markus Cone and Melissa Cone
  • Claire Elestwani
  • Reema Farra
  • Simon Gonzales
  • Rylee Henson
  • Erin Joyce
  • Josh Litos
  • Amira Maruf
  • Hyun Park
  • Jose Chavero Rivera
  • Jamie Robertson
  • Erick Zambrano

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through July 17.
