smART Salon: The Value of an MFA
Wednesday May 30, 2012
Since the 1960’s, artists have debated the benefits of a graduate degree in
visual art. With the rise in graduate program costs and the increasing
globalization of the contemporary art market, is an MFA still seen as "the
first legitimator in an artist’s career,” as Sarah Thornton concludes in
Seven Days in the Art World? Join us for a panel discussion considering
the pros and cons of the Masters of Fine Arts. Panelists include Ann
Bermingham, professor and researcher at the University of California
Santa Barbara; Jane Chafin, gallery owner and writer; Piero Golia, LA-based artist; Nathan Hayden, MFA graduate and artist; Kori Newkirk, MFA
graduate and LA-based artist; and Hank Pitcher, Santa Barbara-based
artist and BFA graduate.
