This year, we celebrate our 30th graduating class from the low-residency MFA in Visual Arts program at Lesley Art and Design. In celebration, we are proud to present the exhibition, Kith + Kin: Friends and Mentors of Lesley MFA, an exhibition that highlights the effort and contribution of mentors and visiting artists over the years.

Many of the artists in the show have served as studio mentors to our MFA students across the country. They have all guided student practice over many semesters through conversation and critique. Other featured artists have served as visiting speakers or visiting faculty in our residencies on campus, adding to the larger discourse which surrounds the MFA community.
