SVA MFA Fine Arts reflects the diversity of New York’s many art worlds. Together the faculty and students form a community of established and emerging artists from many backgrounds who work across disciplines and modes of practice. The department’s main goals are to provide a stimulating and supportive environment in which students can thrive and develop as artists, to foster rigorous critical engagement with contemporary art and other cultural forms and to produce an ongoing conversation through work as much as through words about what we make, how we make it and why.
SVA MFA Fine Arts attracts ambitious emerging artists from many countries and backgrounds. In their commitment to art, and to one another, they provide a foundation for artistic growth that extends beyond graduation and forms an ongoing platform of professional support.
