Narrative Objective | Objective Narrative
MFA Visual Narrative Open Studio and Project Exhibition
5:30-6:30PM SVA Community Preview | 6:30-8:30PM Open to the public
Limited run! Please join Nathan Fox, Chair, as well as faculty and students from the inaugural class of the MFA Visual Narrative Program, for Open Studio Night. With the first of our on-site sessions ending July 26, this event provides an unusual opportunity to meet current students and tour the active workspace. Exhibited work will include the final assignment "Narrative Objective | Objective Narrative" - A collection of original short story narratives created by each student that combines a unique yellow object and characters of their own design.
The MFA in Visual Narrative program at SVA is a groundbreaking approach to visual storytelling. Comprised of three eight-week summer sessions in NYC and two academic years online, this low-residency program places equal emphasis on creative writing and figurative visual expression. The program is designed for both working professionals and recent graduates from all creative disciplines who are dedicated to the art and craft of visual storytelling as both artist and author.
Our event is open to the general public free of charge. There are parking garages on the block, as well as a bike share station.
The MFA Visual Narrative program is chaired by editorial illustrator and comic book artist Nathan Fox. His work has appeared in The New York Times, EW, Rolling Stone, Image, Vertigo, and Marvel Comics, and within projects for MTV, Burton, Nike, 1800, AOL and many more. Faculty include such diverse professional storytellers as art director and illustrator Jennifer Daniel; writer and information designer Alicia DeSantis; writer and illustrator Edward Hemingway; artist and printmaker Ross MacDonald; historian and critic Leonard Marcus; publisher and writer Dan Nadel; designer and artist Jeff Rogers; artist Jonathon Rosen; illustrator Matt Rota; illustrator, comic book artist and designer Jim Rugg; author Mark Sable; and writer/game producer Ben Zackheim.
