Hunter College/Times Square Gallery
450 West 41st Street, (between 9th and 10th), 212-772-4991
February 10 - March 24, 2007
This expansive exhibition is a survey of work from twenty-three institutions within a one-hundred-mile radius of New York. Tracy L. Adler, curator of the Hunter College Art Galleries, is overseeing the exhibition, which houses fifteen spaces totaling thirteen thousand square feet.
Representatives from each MFA program, select the work for their own sections. In most cases, second-year students receive preference over first. “The beauty of the show is that each program selects their artists and hangs their section, so we never know how it will turn out,” Adler says. “We make every effort to encourage the programs to work together with an eye toward unity and professionalism.”
The participating institutions this year include: Bard College; Brooklyn College; City College; Hunter College; Long Island University, C. W. Post Campus; Lehman College; Montclair State University; New Jersey City University; New York Academy of Art; New York University; Parsons/New School for Design; Pratt Institute; Purchase College; Queens College; Rutgers University; School of Visual Arts; State University of New York at New Paltz; Stony Book University; Tyler School of Art, Temple University; University of Connecticut; Western Connecticut State University; and Yale University.
CAA’s Regional MFA Exhibition was introduced in 1989 at the 77th Annual Conference at San Francisco State University as The Bay Area MFA Exhibition 1989. Previously, CAA hosted Drawings by MFA Candidates from American Colleges and Universities in 1974 at Wayne State University, in conjunction with the 62nd Annual Conference in Detroit.
