The Wind Tunnel Graduate Center for Critical Practice is Art Center College of Design’s new forum for speakers, conferences, exhibitions, residencies, screenings, and publications. An initiative of the graduate programs in Art and Media Design Practices, the forum is named after its home—a former supersonic jet testing facility situated between the two programs on Art Center’s growing south campus.

Program descriptions
Graduate Art is an interdisciplinary Master of Fine Arts program that encourages divergent ideas and methods. With a core faculty of 12 internationally recognized artists and writers, an adjunct faculty of 21 and a total of 35 students, we have the highest faculty-to-student ratio of all comparable MFA programs. The result is an intense work environment where concentrated art-making is assured equally concentrated and careful attention, whether within specific disciplines or among them: in film, video, photography, painting, sculpture, installation, performance and everything in between.

Media Design Practices / Lab + Field brings interdisciplinary design practices to a world of cultural and technological change. Graduates get an MFA in Media Design through one of two tracks: Lab or Field. In the Lab Track, students work with emerging ideas from technology, science, and culture, using design as a mode of critical inquiry in a studio context. In the Field Track, students work in an international context where social justice, media infrastructure, and communication technology intersect.
