Back in Action
The past year has seen a major change in the setting where the ArtPracticeasResearch.com is housed and the context shaping updates about issues about studio-based research in the visual arts. Much of the original material generated by the site is being retrieved from archives and will be re-posted. New resources will be identified as they become available and an active blog and information service again put in place.
On a personal level, I have moved institutions and in August 2010 accepted the position as Director, School of Visual Arts, Penn State University. The previous 11 years at Teachers College Columbia gave me the chance to work with an array of extraordinary students who helped us re-think what graduate research in art and art education can be in the US. The lure of returning to an art school located within a large research university was too hard to resist. Having settled in amid another extraordinary group of faculty and students the hope is that even more possibilities will emerge for imagining what graduate education can be about.
I’m looking forward to catching up.
