Welcome back to those of you who are returning and welcome to all of our new community members – we are delighted you have chosen to join us!

It’s wonderful to see students and faculty again, whether online or in person. Although we are by no means back to normal, we are confident that you will have an excellent semester and appreciate your patience with the measures that remain in place to keep everyone as safe as possible.

Our Visiting Artist Lecture Series (VALS) will continue to be online this fall and we have an excellent roster of artists scheduled (details below). Many thanks to our MFA VALS Coordinators Kirsten Leach and Debo Mouloudji for organizing such an exciting series. We hope to see you there!

In addition, on September 24th and 25th, a Collaboration with Pratt’s Center for Teaching & Learning and Project Third (P3), Fine Arts: Decolonial Art Pedagogies organized by faculty Carlos Motta and the collaborative team that is Fine Arts’ Project Third (P3) with Pratt’s Center for Teaching and Learning. At this online form, a series of presenters will share ideas and practices for promoting equitable learning opportunities through decolonial approaches to an inclusive curriculum and pedagogy. We hope you can join us for what I am sure will be an enriching series of forward-thinking conversations.

As we all get back to work after the summer break, I hope you and your loved ones are safe and well and wish you the very best for a fabulous semester!
