Communicating Greatness
Celebrating Our Community of Excellence

In 1988 SVA instituted the Masters Series, an annual award exhibition to honor great visual communicators—designers, illustrators, art directors and photographers—of our time. As Silas Rhodes, founder and chairman of the College put it, "Though their achievements are lauded by their colleagues, the names of groundbreaking visual artists often go largely unrecognized by the general public even though many people have been influenced by their work and have responded strongly to their imagery. At the School of Visual Arts we feel that artists of this caliber should have the widest possible public exposure and recognition, which is why we offer this annual award and exhibition."
