The Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan is currently accepting MFA in Art applications for Fall 2018 (deadline: January 6, 2018). Stamps MFA students join an intense, supportive, curiosity-filled culture of makers and scholars. Idea and material work together at Stamps, as students create culturally relevant work and gain a clear understanding of theory and context.

Without the constraints of media-specific boundaries or disciplines, Stamps MFA students immerse themselves in the rich research community of the University of Michigan to conduct real cross-disciplinary inquiry and create cogent and transformative art. Learn more about the Stamps MFA program and the new Stamps Gallery through the thesis work of our 2017 program graduates: Carolyn Gennari, Ruth Burke, and Shane Darwent.
