Strong BFA programs in NY state?


Recommended Posts

I know this board is to help people apply to and assess MFA programs but I need your help.  For a project I'm looking at BFA programs in NY state.  We all know the usual suspects but I'm interested in hearing from graduates of the under-appreciated programs.   If you had a positive experience in an NY state (public or private) visual arts program I'd love to know about it.  What made it good?  Who were your exceptional teachers?

I graduated from SUNY New Paltz with a BFA in painting, and I loved it. The school itself is in a beautiful area and there is some great faculty. I'd say there is a healthy mix of talent so you'll have the opportunity to be around some very talented people, while still being able to shine. And hey, state tuition's the best.

Buffalo state has an amazing sculpture program. The head of the department, Ken Payne, is a cast iron legend. We have 6 hour group critiques and great studio spaces.
