The BFA Program in Art Practices offered by the School of Art + Design at Portland State University is designed to provide a selected group of Art Practices students with one-year of specialized studies before graduation. The program is intended to complement the Art Practices BA/BS degree tracks and to facilitate an open dialog on contemporary art, its practices, and its cultural implications. This experience is offered as an extra step towards a future professional career. Upon admission, students commit to an intensive one-year residency in which they research, practice, construct, and discuss a body of work, in part to be presented as a public exhibition at the end of the program. These exhibitions represent a documentation of that experience and highlight some of its varied manifestations.

Exhibiting Artists: Maggie Irwin, Kate McCourt, Tatyana Ostapenko, Craig Overbey, and Michelle Wood.
