California Institute of the Arts’ MFA program is pleased to announce Open Studios 2012 to be held on April 22, 2012 from 1pm to 6pm.
Open Studios is an annual event at CalArts in which MFA graduate candidates in Art, Photography and Media, and Art and Technology open their creative workspaces to the public for one afternoon. Attendees are offered a unique opportunity to meet with rising artists and preview their work-in-progress firsthand in the informal studio setting. Each artist will be available to answer questions and discuss their artistic practice.
The Master of Fine Arts Program at CalArts is a two-year, full-time, studio-based program located in Valencia, CA.
An interdisciplinary forum for the intellectual, cultural, and experimental possibilities in production, the program pushes students to question conventional ideas about contemporary art. MFA students present a solo mid-residency or thesis exhibition each year of study that is open to the public and critiqued by the institution.
CalArts adheres to a non-hierarchical teaching policy in which graduate and undergraduate art students take class together and engage in collaboration. BFA4 studios will be open for this event.
Maps of the studios will be available to visitors upon arrival. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
CalArts is located 30 minutes north of downtown or West Los Angeles at 24700 McBean Parkway, Valencia, CA 91355.
