The low residency format of the MFA-IA includes two intensive residency periods each year, housed in SNU’s campus and community. This summer, our residency is going virtual! Residencies bring students, faculty, and visiting artists together in a collaborative community to critique and explore unfamiliar ideas and to consider cross-disciplinary questions.

All of these online events are free and open to the public, but registration is required.
