Call for applications
ArtCenter’s Graduate Art MFA program is now accepting applications for fall 2016. Priority application deadline is February 1, 2016. For information about the program, please visit our website.

ArtCenter’s two-year Graduate Art program is based on intensive studio practice and rigorous academic coursework. The program is distinguished by a low faculty-to-student ratio that provides students with the attention and feedback they need to refine and achieve their artistic goals. Faculty and students are artists working in all genres—film, video, photography, painting, sculpture, performance and installation. A significant number of alumni have achieved national and international acclaim, and often return to share their insights and expertise as visiting faculty and guest lecturers.

Applications for fall 2016 can be found here.


Spring 2016 Graduate Lecture Series
ArtCenter’s Graduate Seminar lecture series is a forum for graduate students, members of the ArtCenter community and the general public to enter into dialogue with internationally recognized artists, critics, and art historians. The seminar—a core component of ArtCenter’s Graduate Art program, and organized this spring by faculty member Jack Bankowsky—takes place Tuesday evenings throughout the fall and spring terms. Admission is free for the general public.

Unless otherwise indicated, lectures take place in the L.A. Times Auditorium on ArtCenter’s Hillside Campus, 1700 Lida Street, Pasadena 91103. Check our website to confirm dates, times and locations for the lecture series and for more information about the Graduate Art program.
