Mia Hutchinson will present her MFA thesis exhibit, "Show & Tell," in the Dutton Family Gallery at the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art (RAFFMA) from April 11-18. The opening reception will take place on Thursday, April 11, at 4 p.m., providing an opportunity for direct engagement with the artist and her work. It will be free and open to the public.

Hutchinson is an interdisciplinary artist who engages with multiple mediums, such as painting, sculpture, photography, and video to present her works. Her thesis exhibition, "Show & Tell," presents a compelling exploration of queer gender and sexuality within the context of personal narrative. This exhibition intertwines these themes with existing mythology and historical tropes, casting a spotlight on the sexualization and fetishization of trans bodies, probing the complex interaction between dominant American culture and queer identity.
