The Minneapolis College of Art and Design is pleased to present Chrysalis Stage, the upcoming 2014 Master of Fine Arts Fall Exhibition at Whittier Gallery. Presenting a variety of disciplines including painting, printmaking, comics, animation, filmmaking, illustration, sculpture, and graphic design, the show will feature work by current MCAD graduate students and recent alum.
This exhibition acknowledges and explores one of the most essential characteristics of the human behavior: change. Chrysalis Stage refers to the last phase of transformation that some insects experience before they reach their full growth. Even though as humans we don't find ourselves wrapped in cocoons, we are in a continuous metamorphosis and development; not only do our bodies modify through time but also our emotions, feelings, and our relationship with the environment. Even the places where we inhabit are constantly mutating as well as the technology, history and paradigms around us.
Through various media, each artist will present a unique and vibrant interpretation of this phenomenon that affects us both in our internal and external spheres, especially in an era like the one we are living today.

Important information regarding MCAD Student Health Insurance: Read carefully!
All MCAD MFA, BFA, and BSc students are required to have a valid Health Insurance Policy to attend MCAD and will be automatically enrolled and billed for MCAD's Health Insurance unless you waive the policy.
By default, all MCAD students are enrolled in MCAD’s Student Health Insurance Plan, which is managed by Gallagher Student Health & Special Risk. This plan is not free. Students are billed on an annual basis beginning in fall semester. This is a one-time charge in the amount of $2,164, and is reflected in your invoice.
"I want to use MCAD's Student Health Insurance Plan"
If you would like to enroll in MCAD's Student Health Insurance Plan, you do not need to do anything. You will be automatically enrolled, and billed for the plan as part of your MCAD Tuition and Fees.
"NO, I have my own Health Insurance Plan. I want to waive MCAD's student health insurance plan"
To waive the Student Health Insurance Plan for the 2014-2015 policy year:
