Sponsored in part by Blick Art Supplies, the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art and MFA Happy Hour, the PSU MFA Studio Lecture Series brings together artists from a variety of disciplines to explore the subjects of their own work before a live audience. Lectures are held throughout the year, most often in Shattuck Annex (SW Broadway at SW Hall on the PSU Campus) on Wednesday nights at 7:00 PM. Lectures are FREE and open to the public.
PSU’S MFA IN CONTEMPORARY ART PRACTICE/STUDIO degree program is dedicated to interdisciplinary experimentation and the exploration of ideas through the experience of making. Students are supported in a range of research and production, from the traditional to the emerging, as they consider the multiple ways art can live in and beyond the studwww.psumfastudio.org
