Type: Awards, Grants, Fellowships [View all]
Posted by: University of Nevada Las Vegas
Deadline: Fri, March 1st, 2019

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas Department of Art invites self-directed artists and designers to apply for the Fall 2019 MFA Program in Art. The three-year Master of Fine Arts (MFA) is studio-based and research-focused with an emphasis on interdisciplinarity, community engagement, and professional development. Each MFA student is provided with individual studio space. Graduate Assistantships in teaching, research, and professional development financially support and professionally advance students who have rare opportunities to engage in cutting-edge research, contribute to the development of curriculum, manage studios and shops, and work alongside community members, local organizations, and other departments on campus. Assistantship packages include tuition waivers and stipends. As the culmination of the program, each MFA candidate produces a public graduation thesis project.

Through academic and public programming, the Department of Art collaborates with UNLV’s Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art, a network of campus galleries, and The College of Fine Arts. Graduate students have the opportunity to work with a diverse art/art history faculty whose work engages a variety of media, including site-based installation, sculpture, ceramics, photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, performance, intermedia, graphic design, and digital art. The Department regularly presents visiting speakers and hosts artists-in-residence.

The Department of Art strives to create a model for professional development in all areas of the arts, design, and relevant histories, to teach the diversity of culture and identity in the US and its democratic values, and to prepare graduates for success in competitive and evolving communities through access to cutting-edge fabrication equipment, new critical and creative contexts, and opportunities for exhibition, publication, discussion, and critique linked with partners in Las Vegas and beyond.

The deadline for Fall 2019 MFA Art Program and Graduate Assistantship applications is March 1, 2019.
