I have been following this website/forum for quite some time and decided to finally post. I am starting to apply to some programs and thought it wouldn't hurt to enter into a dialogue. I am currently located in LA, but am applying to midwest/east coast schools. I am still considering UCLA. I recently finished a book by Sarah Thornton, Seven Days in the Art World. It highlighted a critique at Cal Arts and I decided their program was probably too conceptual for me, though I am in no way opposed to conceptual work. I would be interested to know more about Henry Radford Hope (IU)'s program and Herron's Programs. I know Herron is relatively new with a MFA program, but that could provide a lot of freedom to guide the program. Thus far I am applying to RISD (Print), SAIC (print and draw/painting), MICA (Hoffberger), Columbia University (Print), IU Hope School of Art, Herron (Print), and Rutgers (Visual Art).
Here is my website www.adamporterart.com
Let me know if there are any other schools I should consider or if there are any on my list I should strike.
I will now be checking this forum 20 times a day.
