Memphis College of Art

Memphis, Tennessee, United States
For eighty-four years, Memphis College of Art was the heart and soul of the Mid-South’s visual arts community. Its origins trace back to the opening of a community arts school, The Memphis Academy of Arts, within the James Lee House in Victorian Village, and continued to its home in the iconic Rust Hall within Overton Park.

Master's Programmes



As one of only three independent regionally and nationally accredited art colleges in the South, MCA provided a rigorous curriculum in an intimate, diverse setting to empower generations of leading artists, designers, and educators.
