About the Low Residency MFA in Studio Arts
For over 50 years, the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) has played a key role in the direction and shape of Native expression. With an internationally-acclaimed college, museum, and tribal support resource through our Land-Grant Programs, IAIA is dedicated to the study and advancement of Native arts and cultures—and is committed to student achievement and the preservation and progress of Native communities.
The launch of the Low Residency MFA in Studio Arts (MFASA) in 2021 furthers IAIA’s mission and reach, in that the program’s primary function is to create artists, mentors, leaders, and teachers through an Indigenous-focused professional-level education that fosters the importance of life-long learning and outreach.
The MFASA two-year, low residency curriculum is grounded in Indigenous cultures and reflects the history and challenges of our time. The program provides world-class contemporary arts education and empowers its students to give voice to the Indigenous experience through their art. IAIA’s MFASA department is committed to graduating successful artists whose contributions are recognized nationally and internationally within a global art context.
Students in the MFA in Studio Arts will be able to:
- Demonstrate enhanced critical understanding of their work within a multidisciplinary Indigenous context
- Practice self-directed learning and self-defined research projects
- Apply professional studio arts practice towards a fine arts career
