Visual Arts Department ranked among top 15 in the U.S. by Artsy

Artsy has ranked the Mason Gross Visual Arts Department among the top 15 in the United States, taking into account tuition fees, admission rates, and first-hand feedback from faculty and alumni:

"The various visual and performing arts programs of Rutgers consolidated and took on the name Mason Gross School of the Arts in the 1970s, but the visual art legacy of the institution extends further back than that. In the early 1950s, Allan Kaprow began teaching at this historic state university; there, he helped start the Fluxus group alongside professors like Robert Watts, Geoffrey Hendricks, and Roy Lichtenstein; artists George Brecht and George Segal; and undergrads Lucas Samaras and Robert Whitman. The program’s excellence continues today, with the likes of Kara Walker currently serving as Endowed Chair, and alums like Joan Snyder, Clifford Owens, and Pope.L. Students also enjoy the added benefit of having a thesis exhibition held in New York City each year, in addition to a show in New Jersey (plus the fact that the galleries of Manhattan are less than an hour away via the lovely NJ Transit)."
