Open Space”—Basque oven
Fresh baked conversation in the Sierras
On June 13, from 2 to 6pm, Sierra Nevada College’s MFA-Interdisciplinary Arts Program will host a public, community event as part of our ongoing “Open Space Series” at a reconstructed Basque oven at Kyburz Flat in the Tahoe National Forest. Firing up the oven, we will feed visitors and host talks by guests, including Christina Barr, Executive Director of Nevada Humanities. The conversations will touch on place-making and encampments, pointing to the program’s ongoing dialogue around a multi-tiered relationship to our environment. Visitors will get to explore solar dye stations, map-making, and periscope-building. The MFA-IA Streamline Mobile Gallery will be on-site with a pop-up Basque exhibit. There is limited capacity in the meadow, so please RSVP to the event here.

MFA-IA scholarship
SNC’s MFA-IA Scholarship priority deadline is quickly approaching. July 31 to August 9 will mark the first residency of our new low-residency MFA program in Interdisciplinary Arts at Sierra Nevada College. With open enrollment already begun, we are excited to invite prospective students to join our growing community of artists and thinkers.

The new low-res MFA-IA will consist of two, intensive ten-day on-campus residencies during summer and winter sessions over the course of two and a half years. During the fall and spring semesters, students will work in their home studios and continue relationships with faculty mentors and fellow colleagues via online communication modes such as email exchange, online seminars, blog contributions and other social media.

Faculty for the MFA-IA program will include a rotating list of prestigious Visiting Artist Faculty, made up of working artists and teachers from across the country as well as current members of the SNC-Fine Arts Faculty. The Visiting Faculty for the summer 2015 residency are: Matt Freedman, Christine Heindl and Peter Rostovsky.
