Hope this finds you all in health and happiness
I was mulling over the past thread about MFA vs. trade school and I
gots my little noggin to wondering why there was little mention of
actual places one could go. I spent a couple of years at the
University of Oregon’s metals department but had to move on b/c of
funding quibbles about me having ‘too many credit hours’. Bah. I’m
elsewhere getting a BFA in a slightly related field [sculpture]
however I fully intend to return to metals once this is done. That
being said, and keeping in mind all the pro’s and con’s of trade vs.
[And yes, I could slog through tons of PR spun by the folks who are
paid to do that for the particular institution… but I value your
input oh so much more]
Where did You go? How was it? Where is it? What is their specialty?
Would you go there again or elsewhere?
Give props to yer alma mater!!!
