The Summer Institute for Visual Arts (SIVA) at Drury University provides an intensive two-month period each summer to focus on artistic development in a critically driven environment while earning graduate level course credit toward a Master of Arts in Studio Art and Theory degree. By combining artist residency and graduate program structures, the MART degree program aims to bridge the gap between an academic undergraduate education and a professional art practice. Participating artists develop a capacity for independent practice and scholarship under the guidance of Visiting Artist Fellows, Faculty and Staff, who, as experienced and engaged practitioners, provide first-hand understanding of contemporary art issues.

2014 Visiting Artist Fellows
Bonnie Begusch is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work examines the intertwined relationship between text, tools and perception. She has taught at San Francisco Art Institute and the University of California, Berkeley, where she received the Outstanding Teaching Award in 2011. She lives and works in Berlin.

Mark Clare works to engage, provoke and agitate the viewer's social conscience through his visual interpretations of the politics of globalization, society and public sphere. He has taught at the National College of Art & Design, Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design & Technology (IADT) and the Limerick School of Art & Design. He currently lives and works in Dublin.

James Gobel creates paintings made of felt, yarn and other fabrics that refer to a range of artistic movements. He is currently an Associate Professor of MFA Fine Arts and Assistant Chair of the Painting/Drawing Program at California College of the Arts in San Francisco.

Andrea Polli is an artist working at the intersection of art, science and technology whose practice includes media installation, public interventions, curating and directing art and community projects and writing. She is an Associate Professor of Art and Ecology and the Mesa Del Sol Endowed Chair of Digital Media at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque.


Only individuals who hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited four-year college or university may be fully admitted in the Master of Studio Art and Theory (MART) program. A candidate needing 30 credits or less to complete the required undergraduate degree may be considered for provisional enrollment.

Additionally, the Summer Institute for Visual Arts may be of interest to those who would like to develop a portfolio for application to an MFA program, or postgraduate (non-degree seeking) students interested in the opportunity to work with our Visiting Artist Fellows. Individuals who already hold a graduate (MA or MFA) art degree may circumvent the curricular sequencing and register for any course with availability.

Fees and Housing
The Summer Institute for Visual Arts is an innovative program aimed at providing a viable (accessible and affordable) alternative to traditional graduate art education. The cost for each Summer Institute, including both graduate tuition and on-campus housing, is around $3,670. Financial Aid is available for those who qualify.
