In the next few days, the spring 2019 issue of SVA’s magazine, Visual Arts Journal, will find its way to some 37,000 mailboxes all over the world, delivering the latest SVA-related news and features to the College’s growing alumni community, prospective students and their parents, and current students and faculty. Copies of the magazine will also be available at various locations on campus, and the full issue is also on the Journal′s page on Issuu—where anyone can read, share or download PDFs of the publication—and select articles will run here on SVA’s homepage over the next several weeks.
