Led by a host of guest artists and art professionals from More Art and the School of Visual Arts (SVA), the program utilizes the thematic lens of ‘socially engaged art’ to guide students through the conceptualization, artistic production, curation, and exhibition of their own public art proposals. Past students have developed infographics, public performances, videos, posters, sticker and social media campaigns, sculptures, and websites. SVA admissions officers will also offer each student a formal critique of their portfolio and share with them what makes a successful application to top art schools.
