Showcase Your Originality.

As a graduate book art student at Mills, you’ll have several opportunities to show your creative work to the campus community, the San Francisco Bay Area arts community, and the general public. In the process, you’ll gain experience with preparing exhibitions and collaborating with professional curators.

During your first year in the MFA program, a visiting curator will help you produce an exhibition of your work on the Mills campus in our Book Art Pocket Gallery or Slide Space 123. This experience will help prepare you for your capstone MFA thesis exhibition in a gallery in Oakland, where you'll work with a professional curator to develop and install your art.

Here's a sampling of recent Mills MFA student work, reflecting a diverse range of aesthetic approaches.
