MFA students tackle questions of control in art exhibit
“How Much Can We Control?” brings to Wichita State University a juried exhibition of regional Master of Fine Arts student artworks that address the presence or lack of control in every aspect of art and life.
The exhibit, organized by WSU School of Art and Design graduate students, is on view through Friday, Feb. 8, in the Clayton Staples Gallery in the McKnight Art Center on campus.
