School of Visual Arts presents Pixel Perfect, an exhibition that brings together selected thesis projects from graduating MFA Computer Art students. Curated by Angelica Vergel, Assistant to the Chair, and Milan DelVecchio, Project Coordinator, the exhibition is on view May 31 through June 11 at the SVA Chelsea Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, 15th floor, New York City.

The exhibition explores the different themes and media of digital art. “In this annual event, MFA Computer Art graduating students showcase not only their thesis project, but also how they envision the future of art making,” Vergel says. “This exhibition is the next step in the evolution of our students’ work,” says Bruce Wands, MFA Computer Art Chair. “It includes interactive installations, video games, experimental video, 3D animation and motion graphics. What makes it unique is the multidisciplinary artistic approach of our graduates.”

The MFA Computer Art Department emphasizes creative experimentation and a multidisciplinary approach to making art with computers and emerging technologies. Dedicated to producing digital artists of the highest caliber, the department guides each student in the development of a personal artistic style in a course of study that is individually tailored to meet his or her needs. Students come from around the world to study in this two-year MFA degree program, which has distinguished itself with eight Student Academy Awards. Please visit mfaca.sva.edu.
