The Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts’ MFA in Visual Art program (MFA-VA) is an inclusive, close-knit community of renegade makers and thinkers. Drawing on the vast resources of Washington University in St. Louis, a tier-one research institution, the program offers students a site for rigorous inquiry, humanity, and intellectual generosity.
Check out our website to learn about our newly appointed chair, professor Lisa Bulawsky; our new curriculum, launching Fall 2021; and enhanced safety protocols to support students’ on-campus learning this semester.
MFA-VA studios are located in Weil Hall, a brand-new, LEED-Platinum facility. Students have access to numerous specialized spaces for making, including a 3D digital fabrication lab, media labs, a textile studio, an expansive printmaking suite (home to Island Press and the Kranzberg Book Studio), and more. Studios are adjacent to the School’s Kranzberg Art & Architecture Library and the Kemper Art Museum, which reopened last fall with Ai Weiwei: Bare Life.
Core faculty include Lisa Bulawsky (chair), Jamie Adams, Michael Byron, Amy Hauft, Meghan Kirkwood, Richard Krueger, Arny Nadler, Patricia Olynyk, Tim Portlock, Jack Risley, Denise Ward-Brown, Cheryl Wassenaar, and Monika Weiss.
