We're delighted to welcome MK Guth as Director of the Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies which comprises the seven graduate programs in art, design, and theory offered by the college.
Guth was the Founding Chair of PNCA's first graduate program, the MFA in Visual Studies, which launched in 2007. This mentor-based, interdisciplinary program with a strong visiting artists component has served as a model for every one of the college's graduate programs.
Guth has been a full-time faculty member since 2006. She was included in the 2008 Whitney Biennial, and has shown widely including recent exhibitions at Canada and Cristin Tierney among others.
"MK is known for her tireless advocacy for the PNCA community, for her enthusiasm and integrity, and for her dedication to rigorous and thoughtful curriculum construction," says Kate Copeland, Vice President and Dean of Academic Affairs. "We are so lucky to have MK Guth with us in this capacity."
