The MFA in Studio Art is a highly selective graduate program that carries the foundational and expansive concept of curator and critic as a vanguard. This approach acknowledges the internal and external associations of advanced learning through topical engagement and dialogue with leading artists, curators, and critics gathered from substantial and comprehensive arenas to serve as visiting artists, professors, speakers, and mentors. Students have their work critiqued by such prestigious curators as Chad Alligood, Curator of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art; Amanda Hunt, Curator of The Studio Museum in Harlem; Matthew Higgs, Director/Curator of White Columns; and Alice Gray Stites; Chief Curator of 21c Museum Hotels and critics such as Robert Storr and Eleanor Heartney. Visiting artists include Janine Antoni, David Brooks, Lesley Dill, Jennie C. Jones, Anders Krisar, Thomas Nozkowski, and Alison Elizabeth Taylor, among others.
“Through the two-and-a-half year sequence of coursework, research, and studio practice, the MFA program’s student artists reflect on the relationship between art and life—drawing from personal experiences while expanding on the unique concerns they bring as individuals furthering their creative expression. Rather than living in a rarefied realm defined more by their choice of medium and an engagement with their art historical precedents, these artists are committed to issues that relate to the people and environments that matter to them.”
– Natalie Bell, Curatorial Associate, The New Museum, NYC
