“My education at MIAD was integral to my development as an artist and thinker. MIAD helped me to build a balanced practice that employs critical thinking skills and meticulous attention to craft. The generous faculty offered me ample time and provided continuous dialogue and support. That said, I was allowed enough freedom as an Integrated Studio Arts Major to structure a program of study for myself. This enabled me to manage my own research interests and time, a skill that is crucial to the sustainability of an artistic practice. If given the choice to revisit my selection of schools for undergraduate studies, I would whole-heartily return to MIAD.”
Rosen’s work is concerned with forms of empirical knowledge and taxonomic systems used to define the perceptual experiences and reproduction methods of non-human animals.
