Fine Arts Roundtable (FAR) is an organization of graduate students at CSULB who host an annual series of events including the Greater Los Angeles MFA Exhibition (GLAMFA), CSULB Open Studios and a guest lecture panel. The goal of these events is to foster a sense of community and build a network of students across universities in the greater Los Angeles area and state-wide. FAR is a community of volunteers and the events that we host are funded by CSULB. One of our primary goals for the 2021-2022 season is to do our best to build community amongst CSULB MA and MFA students.

Fine Arts Roundtable (FAR) is a graduate student run organization. Our mission is to foster a sense of community and create positive discourse between the graduate students here at California State University Long Beach and surrounding Southern Californian Institutions. In honor of that spirit, FAR for the past fifteen years has hosted Greater Los Angeles Master of Fine Arts (GLAMFA) Exhibition at CSULB School of Art galleries.

GLAMFA is a two week-long event hosted at the beginning of each academic year, in the first week of the Spring Semester for the past sixteen years. Along with the exhibition, we host CSULB Open Studios for our graduate students and a visiting artist panel discussion. 

Interested in volunteering for FAR? We are currently looking for members in the CSULB School of Art Community to help us host this series of events and get to know their local community! Skillsets of all kind are welcomed from administrative and logistical expertise to creative support and day-of operations.  If you are interested or want more information, please let us know by emailing at teamglamfa@gmail.com.
