The Art Department at Radford University is characterized by flexibility of offerings. All studio areas are offered each semester, providing students with opportunities to explore a variety of interests and develop expertise in chosen media. Art majors may concentrate in studio art, graphic design, art history and museum studies, or art education.
Coming this spring: our first silkscreening workshop will be offered on Thursday evening, from 5 until 9:30. Limited enrollment so sign up soon.
Each year, graduating MFA students exhibit their best work. Work made for the MFA show expresses each student’s personal vision, goals, and advances in technique. The 2017 exhibition catalogue you see here opens with some examples of faculty work and then features highlights from the work of four students who completed their degree in the spring semester.
The MFA 2nd-year review is scheduled for Apr. 13, 2018 from 11 until 1:30 in Porterfield 200. Everyone is invited to attend and see our newest group of MFA students present and discuss their art.
