Students assisted Mary Smull's piece

Author: David Rhoads

Students in the Structural Embellishment class assisted in creating Working Hard or Hardly Working by Mary Smull.  In Working Hard or Hardly Working, Smull presented a series of hand-stitched polar fleece blankets that pay homage to Sol LeWitt, On Kawara, and Robert Morris—artists whose conceptual approaches deal with the parameters of artistic labor. Exhibition visitors were encouraged to relax on the gallery sofa under the conceptual blanket of their choosing, peruse a stack of readings, and listen to the companion audio piece I Don't Know How They Do It: Rock songs about the work of making rock music.

Founder’s Garden Installation

Author: Kayla Cropper

Junior Fibers and Materials Studies major Lauren Koch was recently approved to install a piece in The Founder’s Garden. To get her installation approved, Koch went through an extensive application process. “I filled out an installation control form, which is basically a description of the work, date and time of the installation, and a drawing of the piece itself,” Koch said. “After getting the signature of my professor, Pazia Mannella, I returned it to be reviewed by Tyler’s Assistant Dean, Carmina Cianciulli. Because I chose to install it on Temple’s campus, it also needed to be reviewed by the Director of Student Center Operations, Jason Levy, and the Superintendent of Grounds, Glenn Eck. After their review it was approved!” Getting an installation approved to be placed on campus can sometimes be difficult, but Koch was unaware of this when she chose The Founder’s Garden as the location for her installation.
