Mangold is interested in Abstract Expressionism and the work of Alberto Burri and Antonio T? Pies.

Pleese advise: MFA / grad school / future ?2008-06-03 10:56:19 by animadverto
Hi. i seek advice of those who have made the journey into the art world, are wiser for it, & who may be able to offer some advice. this may seem like i am over thinking/brooding, and i am. so i would really appreciate your thoughts!
i was recently accepted to cranbrook academy of art's painting program. however, when i visited i felt it was not really the right place for me; i am a little f... in residence/prof in the department and she is very distant from the students (hardly spoke to me when i visited) -- even though she is very insightful
- most of the work is fairly traditional
- the school is so isolated (which means you have a small world and there are lots of incestuous relationships)
- and also that i would have to take on a lot of debt (at least 40-60k total)
