Program Description

MFA Art Practice at the School of Visual Arts invites emerging and mid-career artists working in all disciplines to apply for the Art Practice Artist-in-Residence program. The Artist-in-Residence will receive a studio, access to the facilities, including the Metal Shop, Wood Shop, Digital Sculpture Center, Digital Editing Lab, Fibers Lab, Ceramics Lab and Nature and Technology Lab, and a $5000 stipend. Additionally, the Artist-in-Residence will give a public artist talk on Tuesday 7/14. They are expected to engage with the SVA Art Practice community, participate in weekly group critiques, and develop a project with first-year MFA candidates in the program, which will culminate in a public presentation (exhibition, screening, performance, book launch, etc.) during Open Studios on July 29th. We are committed to building a culturally and artistically diverse community and encourage applications from artists working in all media and representing all identities.
