The students in the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts have spent three intensive summers in residence at Bard, where they have worked with faculty who are leading artists in their respective fields of painting, writing, photography, sculpture, film/video, and music/sound. During the winter months, the students continued to work on independent projects related to their field of study. The MFA Program at Bard offers students the opportunity to receive cross-disciplinary feedback about their work, receiving a broader and deeper response from a community of artists, rather than the departmental approach that traditional MFA programs favor. All events are free and open to the public. For further information, visit the website www.bard.edu/mfa/events, e-mail mfa@bard.edu, or call 845-758-7483. # # # (6/19/06)
