SVA Responds to COVID-19

Read the latest on SVA’s response to the coronavirus and find the resources you need.

An array of materials published by Visual Opinion.

The Visual Opinion (VO), which publishes six issues per year, was founded over 20 years ago. This student-run magazine showcases student art work from all departments and covers a diverse set of visual narratives and themes; an issue can focus on one topic, abstract or real, and another issue can be purely a visual exploration.  


Like most publications, it is a work in progress and reflects the changing nature of the staff, the students and the times.  Although the magazine's issues are constantly changing, it is the team's commitment to representing the students and staying focused on the SVA student voice that remains an important tenet of the publication.

How to Get Involved

Students can apply to be freelance contributors for each issue.  Call for Entry posters are distributed in advance of each issue with information on how to apply to become a contributor. Students can also apply to join the editorial staff. On staff, students will have opportunities to work with professional clients, and to edit and design the publication.


Questions should be emailed to VO@sva.edu. The Visual Opinion can also be reached by phone at 212.592.2280, or at the Student Engagement and Leadership office (340 East 24th Street, First Floor of the 24th Street Residence).
