Author: Kayla Cropper

Adjunct Jewelry Professor Doug Bucci makes all of his jewelry on a 3D printer. His piece "Sweetmeat" is currently on display for the Museum of Art & Design's "Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital" exhibition. "Two years ago, I was invited by MAD's curator Ron Labaco to be a part of the Out of Hand exhibition," Bucci said. "Labaco had seen the beginnings of my new series 'Sweetmeat' at the 2011 SOFA New York exhibition. The work was presented by Sienna Gallery as part of the exhibition 'Covet'." His piece is an epergne, or centerpiece, that was 3D printed and made up of stainless steel, nylon, biocompatible resin, silicone, and 18k gold.

After taking her first darkroom class in high school, Havre de Grace native Hannah Close fell in love with photography. When she decided to further her education, Close found that Tyler's Photography Department was a fit for her.

By far the nicest facilities of any of the art schools I applied to." Now Close is a senior and has recently been awarded both a Diamond Peers Teaching Award and a CARAS Project Grant. With the grant, Close was awarded $1,900 to spend next semester assisting with research and production on a project at the Susquehanna River. Read More
