Author: hjh

The Tyler School of Art is embarking on a major re-design of its admissions viewbooks, the publications used by prospective students searching for the right college, and this time the school will experiment with a new source for photography: Tyler students. Starting after Spring Break, Tyler is asking all of its students, undergraduate and graduate, to share their best images of the Tyler experience, including scenes of the creative process, classrooms and studios, student life, student-teacher interactions, exhibitions and installations, museum and gallery visits, critiques, research in the field, facilities, social events, technology, spontaneous gatherings and more. “The people who really understand what’s great about Tyler are our students, and we can’t think of anyone with could do a better job of capturing that with the authenticity and the skill that we need,” said Tyler staff member Olivia Menta, BFA ’14, who is managing the viewbook project.

Each year, the Art Education Department presents exhibitions of work done by student teachers and their pupils for display at the Stella Elkins Gallery.
