Guests from outside the ArtCenter community are advised to bring proof of vaccination and a photo ID. 

Support for this series is generously provided by the following: Jack Shear, Brenda R. Potter, Brendan Dugan, Sprüth Magers, Blum & Poe, Beth Rudin DeWoody, Hannah Hoffman, and Alan Hergott.

About Our Program:
Grad Art is an interdisciplinary MFA program that encourages divergent ideas and methods. With a core faculty of ten internationally recognized artists and writers, numerous adjunct and guest faculty and a total of 35 students, we have one of the lowest faculty-to-student ratios among comparable programs worldwide. The result is an intense work environment where concentrated artmaking is assured and accompanied by concentrated, careful attention both within and beyond the disciplines practiced by our Core Faculty: film, video, photography, painting, sculpture, installation, performance and philosophy.

We currently offer a full scholarship to one incoming student every other year and, thanks to the success of our recent benefit sale of works donated by faculty and alumni, Artists for Art Center, we are creating an endowment with the aim of making that an annual occurrence by 2024. This year, the Grad Art department also awarded a half-tuition scholarship for students from under-represented communities and a merit-based half-tuition scholarship for second year students, a practice we aim to continue into the future. In 2021, approximately 56 percent of ArtCenter students received institutional scholarship and 72 percent of ArtCenter students received Financial Aid.

Core faculty: Stan Douglas (Chair), Kelly Akashi, Lita Albuquerque, Ei Arakawa, Gabrielle Jennings, Shahryar Nashat, Laura Owens, Patti Podesta, Jason E. Smith, and Diana Thater.
