Save the date: Degree Critical relaunch party on February 7

Join us for an evening of readings, music, and more to celebrate the re-launch of our online journal Degree Critical

The MFA program in Art Writing at the School of Visual Arts was established in 2007 for writers with a focus on visual arts and criticism as a place to hone this special craft. Degree Critical, initiated soon after as the department’s online publication, has grown to encompass writing by students, faculty, and alumni, making it an unparalleled space on the Internet for perceptive and relevant critical writing.
While still affiliated with the department, as the journal moves into its second decade, we’re rejuvenating Degree Critical and re-launching it as a unique website.
To celebrate this inspiring transformation of our beloved publication, we’ve planned an evening of readings, music to write by, and refreshments. Prospective students who would like more information about the program will have an opportunity to speak with current students, alumni, and faculty as well. Come see why we are the premier graduate program for Art Writing in the country, and explore this new phase of Degree Critical.
The event is open to the public. Please join us at our department at 132 West 21st Street in Chelsea, on the 6th floor, at 6:30PM on Thursday, February 7 to welcome the new Degree Critical!
