The 2020 FIT MFA in Illustration candidates have spent the past three years of graduate study supporting, challenging, and encouraging each other through remarkable and extraordinary circumstances. As individuals they are talented, dedicated artists. As a group they are unbreakable. Displayed here are nine projects exploring narratives with themes of personal analysis, cultural history, science, reportage, and fantasy. Viewed together, the work is a powerful unified artistic expression.
The Jacaranda tree is a symbol of this cohort’s trip to California. It is a fitting commemoration of their shared growth and their sturdy, enduring bond. We are proud to present this work that represents the culmination of three years of academic study and professional development for the class of 2020.
