Boston University College of Fine Arts

Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Visual Arts

The intensive program in graphic design leading to the MFA degree is a conceptually based course of study and consists of regular critiques by a faculty of practicing professionals and professional training in advanced design technology. Students are encouraged to explore new ideas, maintain and promote the highest design standards, and keep themselves abreast of contemporary developments in the graphic design field.

Each student in the MFA painting program concentrates on developing a personal artistic vision. Student work is enriched through contact with the ideas and experiences of a distinguished painting faculty, visiting artists, and fellow students. Students acquire and practice new painting techniques and explore ideas and images by generating paintings, drawings, and prints, all of which are part of this exhibition.

Students in the studio teaching and art education programs concentrate on developing methods that teach children and adolescents to think visually and create art with personal meaning.  The exhibition consists of the work students have done in extensive studio art classes.

Founded in 1839, Boston University is an internationally recognized private research university with more than 30,000 students participating in undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs. BU consists of 17 colleges and schools along with a number of multi-disciplinary centers and institutes which are central to the school’s research and teaching mission. The Boston University College of Fine Arts was created in 1954 to bring together the School of Music, the School of Theatre, and the School of Visual Arts. The University’s vision was to create a community of artists in a conservatory-style school offering professional training in the arts to both undergraduate and graduate students, complemented by a liberal arts curriculum for undergraduate students.
