MFA on the Road

The team from MECA’s MFA program including current faculty, the department chair, and admissions team members will be traveling to a town near you. Meet up with us at a free Graduate National Portfolio Day (Grad NPD) to discuss the program in depth, ask questions, and have your artwork reviewed. We’d also love to chat over coffee if you are in the area but cant attend the GNPD- email us at to set it up!
