The MFA-IA Summer Residency 2020 will be held virtually, as SNU as an institution has decided on a continuation of a virtual format until mid-fall. The Tahoe region is known as a place to retreat, and it is already attracting more people from all over than usual, thus putting our MFA community at high risk for COVID-19 transmission. We are extending the dates of our residency, and those will now be August 7 – 21. This expansion from its original dates, guided by the voices of our community, will allow time for recovering energy, and hopefully allow more opportunity for points of contact that might have happened spontaneously in person, as well as more time to work on your individual practices. Additionally, we have decided to continue a series of Artist Lectures over the course of the fall semester, offered virtually, to allow additional ways to engage alumni voices as well.Read More
