MFA Art Writing Info Session - February 7, 2019

Event Date:Thursday, February 07, 2019 6:30 - 9:00pm

Location:Graduate Information Sessions are held at different locations. The MFA Art Writing department will host their event at 132 West 21st Street, 6th floor.

Description:(NOTE: Online registration is closed, but guests are still welcome to attend.) Join us for an evening of readings, music, and more to celebrate the re-launch of Degree Critical, the online journal published by MFA Art Writing at SVA. The MFA program in Art Writing at the School of Visual Arts in NYC was established in 2007 for writers with a focus on visual arts and criticism as a place to hone this special craft. Degree Critical, initiated soon after as the department’s online publication, has grown to encompass writing by students, faculty, and alumni, making it an unparalleled space on the Internet for perceptive and relevant critical writing. While still affiliated with the department, as the journal moves into its second decade, we’re rejuvenating Degree Critical and re-launching it as a unique website: degreecritical.com. To celebrate this inspiring transformation of our beloved publication, we’ve planned an evening of readings, music to write by, and refreshments. Prospective students who would like more information about the program will have an opportunity to speak with current students, alumni, and faculty as well. Come see why we are the premier graduate program for Art Writing in the country, and explore this new phase of Degree Critical.
