Students: We want your photos of life at Tyler

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.

Tara Kaufman awarded the William H. Truettner Graduate Fellowship

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.

Adjunct Professor Frances Beaver in SITE Seeing at Little Berlin

Author: tuj81552

SITE Seeing is a show about challenging the constructs of time and space and the potential to create new realities. Shifting possibilities of the real offers political agency and promise of new utopias. It is easy for us to imagine what could go wrong; and to see what has already gone wrong, but while we fight for a better world, it’s important to dream about what could be. The artists in this show slice through the fabric of reality to give us a glimpse of what could be on the other side.
