Memphis College of Art

Served as Director of the MFA Program at the Memphis College of Art from 2005-2008.



As a studio intensive program, the MFA at Memphis College of Art offers a catalytic environment with the goal of developing artistic practices that contribute significantly to contemporary culture. The program emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach to artmaking in both traditional and new media. During the course of study, students are encouraged to consider the social, cultural, and physical context of their work as central to its interpretation.

Critical seminars and accomplished faculty from a variety of disciplines working in a range of historical, theoretical, and cultural topics contribute significantly to intensive studio work and final thesis presentation. Instruction blends rigorous group critiques with personal and informal interaction between faculty and students. The diversity and frequency of critical discussion strengthens each student’s personal vision and development of articulate responses.
