Art & Ecology is an interdisciplinary, research-based program engaging contemporary art practices. Graduate and undergraduate students develop land and cultural literacy with a conceptual foundation and a wide range of production skills, including sculpture, performance, analog and digital media, and social practice. Advanced coursework includes the Land Arts of the American West program, a semester-long travel and place-based arts pedagogy initiated in 1999. Students in Art & Ecology have the opportunity to work on various collaborative and interdisciplinary projects with departments across UNM and on comprehensive thesis projects integrating community and ecological research.
The deadline for graduate applications to the Art Studio MFA is January 15th, 2016 for Fall 2016 admission. This program does not offer spring admission. For more information:
