American photographer, Stephen Shore has published and exhibited widely for more than four decades. Credited with igniting a new interest in color photography as well as the use of the view camera for documentary work in a series of landmark shows at New York’s Light Gallery in the 1970s, Shore has been accorded one-person exhibitions at institutions including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (1971), where he became the first living photographer to be so honored since Alfred Stieglitz, forty years earlier; Kunsthalle, Dusseldorf (1977); Art Institute of Chicago (1984); the George Eastman House, Rochester, NY (1996); the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2005); and the Jeu de Paume, Paris (2005). Last year, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, opened a major retrospective spanning Shore's full career.

Faculty and students are artists working in all genres—film, video, photography, painting, sculpture, performance and installation. A significant number of alumni have achieved national and international acclaim and often return to share their insights and expertise as visiting faculty and guest lecturers.
