July 31–August 9, 2018 will mark the next summer session of the low-residency MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts program at Sierra Nevada College. We are excited to invite prospective students to join our growing community of artists and thinkers. With rolling admissions, students will complete their MFA in five consecutive residencies regardless of the semester in which they enter.

The program consists of two intensive 10-day, on-campus residencies during summer and winter sessions over the course of 2.5 years. During the fall and spring semesters, students will work in their home studios and continue relationships with faculty mentors and fellow colleagues remotely through online seminars and other points of contact. While in Tahoe, students have the opportunity to explore ideas about site and location, both literally and figuratively, both through experiemental practices and long-term projects.

Current students and faculty participate from a variety of locales, and across media and discourses. A vital and compelling cross-disciplinary community is forming and growing. Faculty for the program will continue to include a rotating list of prestigious Visiting Artists, made up of working artists and teachers from across the country as well as current members of the SNC Fine Arts Faculty.

Previous Visiting Faculty: Beth Campbell / Mary Donnelly / Peter Rostovsky / Kelly Nipper / Sameer Farooq / Christine Heindl / Ayanah Moor / Scott Oliver / Rob Reynolds
