The Fashion Institute of Technology Masters of Fine Arts in Illustration program, founded and designed by Melanie Reim, began as a Master of Arts degree and first awarded diplomas in 2007. In 2010 the program welcomed its first MFA candidates. The FIT MFA in illustration seeks out dedicated and talented students, and encourages them to develop into sophisticated professional artist and illustrators.
As individuals, out students are painters, designers, animators, writers, and story tellers. As a group, they are a powerful voice. The 2016 Fall Show is an expression of that voice. This group exhibition, the first featuring all of our current students, recent graduates, and faculty, is a student driven initiative.
Presented here are images representing the work of the FIT MFA in illustration candidates for the classes of 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and faculty members.
This exhibition is presented in partnership with OkayPlayer and Okay Space, with generous support from the Fashion Institute of Technology School of Graduate Studies, and Dean Mary Davis. Thankful for additional donations by Brooklyn Brewery, Union Wine Company, Best Pizza and Blick Art Supplies.
Welcome to the opening reception at Thursday Dec 1st night 7-10pm at 281 North 7th Street Okay Space, enjoying the artworks and delicious food!
