The College at Brockport, SUNY’s MFA in Visual Studies at VSW is designed to offer a wide range of students a highly flexible structure that combines visionary thinking and practical experience in the fields of photography, books, and moving images.
Every two years, VSW invites a dozen people to present serious ideas about photobooks as artworks at an informal assembly we call the Photo-Bookworks Symposium.
Over ninety percent of VSW’s graduates work in media arts related fields. Many have gone on to very prominent careers as artists, writers, curators, executives, and educators with world–renowned institutions.
VSW’s Summer Institute is a series of intensive one-week conducted by visiting artists and scholars. These concise, concentrated workshops enable students to focus on skills and concepts that will have lasting affects on their practice and thinking.
