Rooted in critical investigation and rigorous, self-disciplined creative practice, the Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies program is ideal for motivated students who can work independently, who desire a flexible structure, and who are seeking the challenge and community of an immersive graduate program, inclusive of both discipline-specific and interdisciplinary practices.
This 60-credit low-residency, mentor-based program combines intensive graduate seminars with an exceptional visiting artist program. Intensive courses occur during three consecutive Summer Intensives and two brief Winter Intensives.
It is a pleasure to introduce Christopher Willauer (Brooklyn, NY) as the first participant of the Tiny Residency at Third Room.
