Please join the ECU School of Art and Design at the opening of the MFA Thesis Show and the Graduate Artsits’ Forum Exhibition.
The Graduate Artists’ Forum Annual Exhibition is a showcase of the School of Art & Design’ graduate student work. This year, the theme of “Amalgamation” describes the eclectic character of graduate students’ explorations and experimentations.
The Graduate Artists’ Forum (GAF) is a student-run organization. GAF seeks to improve the University’s awareness of the visual arts through exhibitions, workshops, and demonstrations, and to provide a forum for the graduate students in the School of Art and Design in which all matters concerning them may be discussed.
The Leo W. Jenkins Building is home to over 40 graduate students who come from all over the nation including Maryland, New York, Georgia, Alabama, Indiana, Wisconsin, California, Japan and more. The School of Art & Design is located on the main campus of East Carolina University and is two blocks away from downtown Greenville.
The School of Art & Design offers two professional degrees, an MFA in Art and MAEd in Art Education degree. Major concentrations include ceramics, graphic design, illustration, metal design, painting & drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, textile design, and wood design. Most students earn their terminal degree in 3 years, a time in which the students master their discipline of choice and are given the opportunity to instruct a class as well as participate in other assistantship duties.
