Redefine the limits of art through experimentation and rigorous practice
The Fine Arts program fosters a rigorous and experimental approach to art making, while encouraging students to pursue their creative commitments in the studio and in the world. The program emphasizes a critical and creative relationship between content and form, an awareness of art historical connections and engagement with the contexts of creative production.
The MFA program at GW comprises a two-year commitment for emerging artists who wish to expand the material and intellectual dimensions of their work. The interdisciplinary nature of the program creates an environment where cross-pollination among fields flourishes. Simultaneously, graduate students enter into vibrant communities of peers, faculty and visiting artists: intensive studio visits and critiques facilitate reimagining the boundaries of art practice. All students receive their own studio space in which to experiment and further develop their skills and body of work.
