The MFA in Studio Art in Moore’s Graduate Social & Studio Practice program in collaboration with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program presents studio conversations.

Works Progress Studio is an artist-led LLC based in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis—St. Paul, Minnesota. Led by husband-wife collaborative Directors Colin Kloecker and Shanai Matteson, Works Progress engages an expansive network of artists, designers, organizers, researchers and other creative people to realize imaginative public art and design projects rooted in place and purpose. Amber Art & Design is comprised of five international public artists with years of specialized experience. Based in Philadelphia, Amber Art & Design is committed to creating meaningful public art that is transcendent and continually challenges the norm with innovative designs and cutting-edge fabrication.

Summer symposium
Saturday, August 1, 2015

This day-long symposium will focus on selected case studies from local, national and international contexts that highlight socially engaged art from multiple vantage points of artist, participant, funder, neighbor, scholar, evaluator and more. Special attention will be given to the subject of “time” as a medium that ties the diverse range of complex case studies together. Please contact [email protected] for more information.

Moore’s Graduate Studies coeducational community consists of five unique programs: MA in Art & Social Engagement, MFA in Community Practice, MFA in Studio Art, MFA in Interior Design, and MA in Art Education with an Emphasis in Special Populations that prepare motivated men and women with the skills, knowledge, and resources to become professional artists, designers, and teachers. Made up of select students, faculty and staff, we test, perfect, invent and forever alter art practices and policies on a local and global scale. The programs’ summer intensive, evening, and weekend year-round scheduling are well suited for working adults seeking to acquire new skills and perspectives.
