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.

Joseph Kopta (PhD candidate, Art History) chairs panel at ICMS

Author: Jane DeRose Evans

Art History Ph.D. student Joseph Kopta co-chaired, with Dr. Brad Hostetler of Kenyon College, the double session, “Venice, Materiality, and the Byzantine World” at the 53rd International Congress on Medieval Studies, May 12, 2018, at the Medieval Institute of Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The sessions were sponsored by the Italian Art Society. Kopta’s participation was sponsored, in part, by a Tyler Dean’s Travel Grant for Art History Graduate Students. The Dumbarton Oaks Byzantine Symposium leading to the 2010 publication of San Marco, Byzantium, and the Myths of Venice introduced new perspectives on Byzantine and Venetian visual and material culture that extended Otto Demus’s survey of Saint Mark’s basilica. The authors’ application of more recent approaches—such as the social function of spolia, the act of display, the construction of identity, and cultural hybridity—brought fresh analyses to a complex and richly decorated monument.

The Art of Student Teaching Exhibition

Author: Kylie Doyle

Each year, the Art Education Department presents exhibitions of work done by student teachers and their pupils for display at the Stella Elkins Gallery. This year, four student teachers displayed the products of their time at a variety of schools as community members gathered in fellowship to appreciate the art made by friends and loved ones. Wendy Osterweil, the supervising professor of this group of students, was one of the Tyler officials present for this installation. “What’s unique about this show is that it’s a rather small group. Each student put a lot of time into this exhibition, and it shows.” The student teachers exhibiting were Brooke Mulroy, Madeline Willis, Maria Chambers, and Anna Capriotti. Read More
