About the Nomad/9 Interdisciplinary MFA
The Nomad/9 Interdisciplinary MFA is a low-residency MFA program based at the University of Hartford, Hartford Art School. The 26-month, accredited program visits sites throughout the Americas, using a living classroom approach to hands-on learning. During each residency, students engage in a reciprocal relationship with the site, learning from local practitioners and contributing to regional initiatives. The curriculum brings together art, ecology, the technology continuum (from craft to code), and the study of history and culture. Featuring an open outcome philosophy, the MFA includes artists from diverse creative disciplines on the faculty, and in the student cohort. Current MFA students’ first year learning experiences include green woodworking in a forest classroom; participating in a workshop on materiality, death and regeneration; practicing performative strategies in relation to self and site; and experiencing North American indigenous knowledge systems with Dakota teachers. Throughout the program, students use multiple genres of writing to develop their art practice in the context of regenerative culture and resiliency. Between residencies, students work independently while working closely with a faculty advisor. The curriculum supports artists working in diverse visual art genres. 2016–17 faculty and visiting artists include:

Christine Baeumler, John Bielenberg, Amanda Carlson, Aaron Dysart, Christy Gast, Hope Ginsburg, Seitu Jones, Matteo Lundgren, Amanda Lovelee, Shanai Matteson, Mary Miss, Colin McMullen, Carol Padberg, Ernesto Pujol, Colleen Sheehy, Allison Smith, Mona Smith, Sandy Spieler, Linda Weintraub, Caroline Woolard
