Fine Arts alumni thrive. Graduates have been accepted into prestigious residencies such as Skowhegan, Black Rock, Senegal, MacDowell Colony, the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program, the Elizabeth Foundation, the Siena Art Institute, and the Whitney Independent Study Program. Our alumni have exhibited at museums such as the Brooklyn Museum, the Whitney Museum, and MoMA, along with galleries such as Miguel Abreu, James Cohan, Marianne Boesky, Lyles & King, Lehmann Maupin, Matthew Marks, Minus Space, Pierogi, and Jack Tilton.
They have received grants from around the world such as Anonymous Was A Woman, Banditto Art Award, Creative Capital, the Dedalus Foundation, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the Joan Mitchell Painters & Sculptors Grant, and the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship. Their work is represented in international public and private collections including the Guggenheim Museum, the Studio Museum of Harlem, the National Gallery, Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, and the Panza Collection.
Graduates have careers as professors at schools such as Hunter College, Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Cooper Union, and Columbia University. Many also find their place in the world as writers, gallerists, and curators, or working in the community as social justice advocates, educators, and change-makers. Others forge their own paths and become innovators in many emerging creative fields.
