Author: Jane DeRose Evans

Tara Kaufman (MA anticipated) has been awarded the William H, Truettner Graduate Fellowship to work with Dr. Eleanor Harvey, Senior Curator at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in the summer of 2019.  Her project, "Antartic Encounters: Perceiving Ecological Change in Frank Wilbert Stokes's Landscapes", an American artist who accompanied several scientific explorations to arctic regions. Stokes's representations of both Arctic and Antarctic landscapes raise critical questions regarding ecological implications of scientific and commercial exploration to regions that are now of urgent concern. Kaufman will consider his landscapes in the context of their being produced on the heels of the Hudson River School of painting, whose artists similarly embedded their landscapes with a sense of national progress.

Author: miranda.westrick

  Students in Eric Oskey's studio class submitted designs to the Land Art Generator Initiative's Melbourne design competition this past semester.

Students were tasked to create a design that responds to the question "What does renewable energy infrastructure look like when it is woven into the fabric of the city?"   Kyle Taveira placed 4th out of hundreds of submissions for his project Dreamtime.
