Four Tyler School of Art and Architecture Graphic & Interactive Design BFA students and one Temple University Klein College of Media and Communication student were among the “Top Talent” recipients of the 2019 Adobe Design Achievement Awards—the world’s premier digital media competition for students and emerging creators.
This annual competition is a great opportunity to expose students to creative leaders, influencers and fellow designers, illustrators, thinkers and problem solvers. It also helps them deepen their understanding of what goes into building a career in the design field.

Grants are one of the greatest resources for artists with a vision. Recently, a Tyler Alumna was the recipient of the Leeway Grant, a source of funds that provides a variety of awards to artists working towards social change in their practice. The Leeway Foundation seeks to amplify marginalized voices in art, providing creators with resources to accomplish their goals and participate in the making of a space in our culture for the unheard.
Barbara Baur, a Tyler Alumna, was recently named as one of the recipients of the Leeway Foundation Art and Change Grant. Baur is a multi-faceted artist and instructor at Tyler. Her work connects body adornment with fine art, and with the help of the Leeway Foundation will be bringing her expertise to new communities. I had the opportunity to interview Baur about her process leading up to the grant, as well as her history in art and community work.
