Following the award-winning revamp of SVA’s undergraduate catalog, the Visual Arts Press has unveiled a full redesign of the graduate catalog. Bearing the title On Any Given Day…, the catalog mixes facts about the College’s faculty and alumni, with photo essays, in-depth interviews and daily snapshots to immerse prospective students in the experience of SVA’s masters programs. “We wanted to give students the chance to peek into the doors and around the corners of what goes on in our graduate programs,” says Michael J. Walsh, the art director of the Press. “There are so many opportunities offered by these departments, so we thought this sampling of the lives and activities of alumni, faculty and current students might give our audience something to relate, and maybe aspire, to.”
On Any Given Day… spotlights more than a dozen MAT, MFA and MPS departments at SVA, and includes a critique by students in the MFA Design Criticism Department of the new TKTS booth in Times Square, a behind-the-scenes look at Circus, an upcoming PBS documentary series by MFA Social Documentary Film Department faculty member Matthew Akers, and a studio visit with photographer Brendan Austin, a recent graduate of the MPS Digital Photography Department.
