The IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA) presents IN CONCLUSION, a BFA exhibition showcasing the graduating class of 2016–2017. IAIA continually inspires the next generation of Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists alike. This exhibition celebrates the students’ success and achievement of their time spent at IAIA, representing the culmination of their artistic endeavor. Although “in conclusion” signifies the end or at last, the curators chose to use this term to metaphorically reference the end of one journey and the beginning of the next. The wide range of works include painting, sculpture, mixed-media installation, printmaking, and jewelry.

The artists represent the long-standing creative legacy IAIA has held for 55 years. So please join us in celebrating their success.
