The School of Art + Design at the University of Illinois is accepting applications for the Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degree in Metal with Fellowship and Assistantship funding.
The MFA in Metal at the University of Illinois is a comprehensive and professional program of study that encourages and supports aesthetic and conceptual development, technical experimentation and research, personal expression, and technical competency. The program acknowledges and celebrates the diverse and inclusive nature of the field of contemporary metalwork and supports investigations of jewelry, hollowware, objects, and small sculpture. The program simultaneously addresses traditional and newer approaches to art making. Traditional approaches include forming, raising, casting, enameling, electroforming, fabrication, anodizing, tool making, chasing and repoussé, and granulation. Newer approaches include 3D technologies, resin, porcelain, papermaking, felting, and alternative materials.
The Metal Program is designed for students who are inquisitive, motivated, and self-disciplined. The moderate sized program promotes a vigorous exchange of ideas while providing an intimate, supportive, and nurturing environment that enables continuous faculty and student interaction. The faculty in Metal encourages diversity and respects individual artistic directions while providing challenges necessary for growth. The Metal Program prepares students for future distinctive and professional achievement in the field of contemporary jewelry and metalwork. Each MFA candidate in the program is afforded the opportunity to teach introductory and intermediate courses in Metal.
