Faculty and Graduate Committee

The faculty of the graduate program includes curators and other arts professionals, scholars in the humanities and social sciences, critics, and artists. Most faculty members are working professionals.

The Center’s Graduate Committee, made up of core faculty and key figures in the field, are also deeply involved in teaching and advising graduate students throughout the two-year program.  The Graduate Committee comes together as a group several times per year to critique and approve students’ masters projects, as well as interview potential candidates for admission to the program. The following includes faculty and Graduate Committee members in 2017-2018.
