Hunter College will open its MFA studios to the public on Friday November 20th from 6-10pm and on Saturday November 21st from 2-6pm. There will be a silent auction of student work Friday evening from 6-9pm on the second floor of the MFA building.
The MFA program at Hunter College is designed to offer broad training for artists in the development of critical and analytical visual thinking as it relates to their work. In this programmatic context all students are encouraged to develop their own art through constant peer contact in the studios, individual work with faculty tutors, critical seminars focusing on student work, and classes in the theory, criticism and history of art. In addition, many artists, curators, critics and historians are invited to meet with students.

About Hunter College Department of Art:
The Art Department at Hunter College offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in studio art and art history.

We believe this is crucial to the achievement of our educational goal of developing professional artists, historians, and curators capable of continued growth once they leave school. The Hunter College Department of Art is proud of the achievements of its Alumni, who are some of the world's leading artists, curators, historians, and art professionals.
