MFA Art: Events & Activites

There are many ways to get involved beyond classes

Annual Juried Exhibition

Each year, Grad students organize and jury an international online MFA exhibition. Over 200 submissions come from MFA programs in nearly every state and many countries.


Grad students operate a gallery, Frontierspace, in downtown Missoula, bringing national contemporary artists to our community.

Grad Student Exhibitions

Graduate students regularly exhibit in galleries on campus, across Montana and nationally while in our program. Periodically, students mount group shows in larger cities such as Seattle and Portland.

Art Symposia

Every month, students produce and host a monthly art symposium downtown,  artTALK, and feature panels of local contemporary artists and critics. These evenings are open to the public.

Residencies and Internships

Grad student work at several nationally-known arts organizations in Montana, with which SVMA has reciprocal relationships.
