Last month, artist and recent Nomad MFA alum sTo Len was named artist-in-residence with the New York City Department of Sanitation as part of the NYC Public Artists in Residence (PAIR) program, which embeds artists in city agencies to envision creative solutions to pressing civic challenges. sTo was invited to bring appreciation to the Department of Sanitation’s critical but often invisible workforce that makes life in New York City possible.
Nomad’s students and alumni are from around the world and represent a diversity of disciplines, including socially-engaged work, sculpture, public art, art and healing, eco art, and performance.

The Nomad graduate program is an interdisciplinary field-based Low Residency MFA with residencies at sites throughout the Americas, from Coatepeque, El Salvador to Miami, Florida and St. Paul, Minnesota. This winter, Nomad will visit New Mexico to work with ceramics and weaving alongside Roxanne Swentzell in the Santa Clara Pueblo and to co-create blueprints for resilient food systems with SeedBroadcast in Anton Chico. The residency will be completed in Carrizozo, New Mexico.
This accredited MFA prioritizes developing skills for the new economy with a local ethos and an understanding of ecological principles. Coursework addresses ethical social engagement, ecology, and craft. The pedagogy encompasses a mix of learning modalities including analytical seminars and critiques, collaborative art processes, and hands-on workshops. Between these residencies, students develop their work with a mentor through online meetings. The entire program lasts 26 months.
