Hunter’s ideal location in Manhattan offers students and faculty many sources of intellectual, cultural, and creative activity.  In New York, as nowhere else, the student has access to the changing ideas and forms of contemporary art.  This is crucial to the achievement of our educational goal: to develop professional artists capable of continued growth once they leave the relatively structured university environment.

The program is designed to offer broad training for artists in the development of critical and analytical visual thinking as it relates to their work.  In this programmatic context all students are encouraged to develop their own art through constant peer contact in the studios, individual work with faculty tutors, critical seminars focusing on student work, and classes in the theory, criticism and history of art.  In addition, many artists, curators, critics and historians are invited to meet with students.

Hunter’s new MFA facility at 205 Hudson Street includes a 5,000-square-foot, street-level gallery that was completed in 2014. This unique space consists of two levels connected by a stair and lift, as well as a dedicated elevator that links the gallery with the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors, where the MFA program resides. A dedicated entrance directly on Canal Street ensures that this gallery grabs a great deal of attention.
