Prospective Graduate Student Open House –
Visit on Monday, November 18
Applications are open for the Sam Fox School’s MFA in Illustration & Visual Culture program at Washington University in St. Louis. The curriculum combines studio practice in illustration with material culture studies. This two-year residential program prepares graduates to work as author-artists of graphic novels and picture books, professors, critical writers, and curators.
The MFA-IVC program is built on the expertise of the School’s illustration and design faculty, and the vast resources of Washington University, a tier-one research institution. The School’s resources include the Kranzberg Art & Architecture Library, the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, and the D.B. Dowd Modern Graphic History Library, a preeminent site for studying the history and culture of American illustration.
MFA-IVC studios are located in Weil Hall, a brand-new facility with a digital fabrication lab and numerous spaces for collaboration and cross-disciplinary exchange. Students will also have access to the integrated printmaking suite, home to Island Press and the Kranzberg Book Studio.
Washington University’s faculty specialize in children’s books, editorial illustration, cultural theory, graphic novels, zines, typography, and social practice: John Hendrix (chair), Chrissi Cowhey, D.B. Dowd, Jonathan Hanahan, Audra Hubbell, Heidi Kolk, Rebecca Leffell Koren, Shreyas R Krishnan, Skye Lacerte, Penina Acayo Laker, Rebecca Leffell Koren, Frank Oros, Jeff Pike, and Dan Zettwoch. Fall visitors include Chris Buzelli, Kevin Huizenga, Ed Kinsella, and Vesper Stamper.
Applications are due by February 3. Apply now.
