The Common Press is the letterpress and book arts studio at the University of Pennsylvania.
Nationally and for our graduate fine arts community, the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) provides an essential forum for the presentation and documentation of recent developments in the visual arts. Artists who present innovative work at ICA often give lectures and critiques of student work. ICA also hosts a number of public lectures each year by visiting artists participating in the MFA program.
The Photography & Video Equipment Room in the Department of Fine Arts provides access to multimedia equipment, studios and technical support in order to enhance the department’s curriculum and foster an environment of experimentation in the areas of photography, video, animation, and design. The Photography & Video Equipment Room maintains a state-of-the-art facility that is safe, efficient, and clean for over eight hundred students from across the university each academic year.
The sculpture facilities provide dynamic workspaces for students working in three-dimension design, fabrication and related media.
