MFAVN’s Third Annual Summer Storytelling Exhibition & Open Studios

Wednesday, July 22, 2015 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Join us for our third annual extravaganza of storytelling work from our wondrous first and second year students. Exhibited work will include the final assignment “Narrative Objective | Objective Narrative” – a collection of original short story narratives created by each first year student that combines a unique blue object and characters of their own design. Since class is only in session at SVA during the summer, this event also provides an unusual opportunity to meet current students and faculty as well as see the studio space.

RSVP here.


The MFA in Visual Narrative program at SVA is a groundbreaking approach to visual storytelling. Comprised of three eight-week summer sessions in NYC and two academic years online, this low-residency program places equal emphasis on creative writing and figurative visual expression. The program is designed for both working professionals and recent graduates from all creative disciplines who are dedicated to the art and craft of visual storytelling as both artist and author. Applications open in September for entrance in June 2016.

There are parking garages on the block, as well as a bike share station.

The MFA Visual Narrative program is chaired by editorial illustrator and comic book artist Nathan Fox. His work has appeared in The New York TimesEW, Rolling Stone, Image, Vertigo, and Marvel Comics, and within projects for MTV, Burton, Nike, 1800, AOL and many more. Faculty include such diverse professional storytellers as designer and strategist Rachel Abrams, designer Eric Baker, art director and illustrator Jennifer Daniel; writer and information designer Alicia DeSantis; writer and illustrator Edward Hemingway; editor and publisher Bill Kartalopoulos; artist and printmaker Ross MacDonald; historian and criticLeonard Marcus;  writer and artist Ben Marra; photographer Stacy Morrison; designer and artist Jeff Rogers; artist Jonathon Rosen; actor and film expert Lee Aaron Rosen; illustrator Matt Rota; illustrator, comic book artist and designer Jim Rugg; author Mark Sable; and writer/game producer Ben Zackheim.
