The Bachelor and Master of Fine Arts spring shows are some of the most anticipated, and important events of the year for students at the University of Arizona School of Art. In many cases these exhibitions are the culmination of years of work. In 2020, like everything else in the world, the spread of the coronavirus abruptly forced museums and studios to close, putting plans in jeopardy and forcing young artists to adapt and reflect on the importance of art in society at large. As of May 2020, both the BFA and MFA shows can be seen online and the MFA show is still planning on a physical exhibition at some point in the future.
