UMaine Intermedia MFA Presenting "Without Borders VIII: Breaking Ground"

The University of Maine's Intermedia Master of Fine Arts program is presenting "Without Borders VIII: Breaking Ground" from August 12th - September 16th in the Lord Hall gallery on campus.  The exhibit is free and open to the public weekdays from 9-4.  

This year's Without Borders features the thesis work of the first graduating class from the Intermedia Master of Fine Arts program: John Bell, Richard Corey, Ryan Guerrero, Bethany Engstrom, Matthew Leavitt and Justin Taylor. The exhibition presents a variety of art that exists “between” traditional art forms, and includes installation, variable media, sound art and community-based graffiti.  

“The Without Borders exhibition this year is very exciting for me, not only does this present the first full class of graduating University of Maine MFA students in Intermedia, but also the nature and breadth of the work itself is really remarkable,” says Owen Smith, director of the IMFA.  

 A closing reception is scheduled for September 15th from 5:30-7:30pm.  For more information, please click here.
