Led by professor and chair Lisa Bulawsky, the program is home to an inclusive, close-knit community of renegade makers and thinkers, and offers students a site of rigorous inquiry, humanity, and intellectual generosity. In fall 2021, we will launch a new curriculum that maximizes the context of the broad and diverse community at Washington University and in St. Louis.
As part of Washington University, a tier-one research institution, the School’s expansive facilities and studios serve as a think tank for intellectual and material experimentation. Students also have opportunities to engage with the city of St. Louis, which serves as both an extension of the studio and site of engagement for art and artists.
The Sam Fox School’s MFA in Visual Art professionally prepares students for a diversified approach to the field of contemporary art that nurtures sustained, lifelong engagement while recognizing multiple pathways and definitions for a career in the arts and culture.
