Faculty

The Tyler faculty are among the most innovative and significant artists, architects, designers, art educators, and art historians working today. They are founders of their disciplines and leaders in their fields. They are also some of the best teachers in arts education—not an easy combination to find. At Tyler you will experience faculty who are committed educators, personally invested in nurturing their students and helping them to redefine their media in preparation for a professional career.

Tyler faculty teach by word and by example, demonstrating daily what a life in art is all about. Tyler faculty are practitioners who create, critique, write, research, exhibit, and publish nationally and internationally. They are widely recognized art and design professionals, having garnered prizes ranging from Guggenheims to Fulbrights to MacArthur Fellowships. They are award-winning designers and skilled educators and historians. And they are generous with their experience.

You will find that some of the most extraordinary artists, designers and scholars you will meet in your entire career will be the mentor-teachers you find at Tyler. As the years pass, you may also find they have become some of your closest friends and most respected colleagues.
