In response to Covid-19 related closures of arts institutions all over the country, a collaborative effort started at RISD created the Thesis Shows 2020 digital platform presenting the work of

graduating students of peer arts institutions. We invite you to see the work of the MICA Photography class of 2020, as well other young artists’ works all over the country.

In conjunction, we have built a virtual thesis exhibition to display the hard work, creative labor, and dedication of these students. In it you will find their portfolios and senior book.

“Two months have passed since COVID-19 shut us down. From my new social distance, I’ve witnessed a great range of emotion. Although the disbelief, frustration and anger seem to be shifting, the reality remains. My class continues to work intensely and with great passion. They have created compelling and beautiful work over their senior year at MICA. What I know now, is that their dedication to their practice and to each other has been forged. This will fortify and serve them always.” Regina DeLuise

To the seniors, we applaud your work, your commitment to each other and the well being of our society. We have loved seeing your drive to question, to make, and to respond.  This spirit will serve you as you navigate what comes next. What comes next is always unknown, but in these unprecedented times, the weight of uncertainty feels more ambiguous and heavy. We can say, with great certainty, the work displayed in the creation of this site is proof of a ubiquitous collaborative spirit that exists in your generation of makers. It is stronger and more unified than ever before.
