Founded in 1981 as the first of its kind, The Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts low-residency MFA brings together students and faculty in 6 disciplines: painting, film/video, sculpture, photography, music/sound and writing for a unique summer program. Students are immersed in a diverse community of artists for three 8-week summer sessions interspersed with winter independent study. Summer sessions take place on the Bard College campus, 2 hours north of New York City on the banks of the Hudson River.
Each summer, Bard MFA welcomes a faculty of over 60 accomplished artists, to engage in critiques, seminars, caucuses and individual conferences with students. They are joined by visiting artists, representing all six disciplines. Summer 2018 visiting artists were: Antje Greie (AGF), Lyle Ashton Harris, Nina Menkes, Aki Sasamoto, Patricia Treib and Simone White.
