The Case for Appropriation – an SVA panel

Appropriation art has been in the news lately, from legal cases such as the Richard Prince vs. Patrick Cariou case or Sheperd Fairey vs. the Associated Press on the photo that Fairey used in creating the iconic Hope poster of the 2008 election, to the proposed rules for SOPA, which would have criminalized much of our online culture of image and video sharing.

The BFA Visual and Critical Studies department is hosting The Case for Appropriation: A Panel Moderated by Joy Garnett to explore these vital issues. The panel will include Virginia Rutledge, Robert Storr, and Oliver Wasow.
WHEN: Tomorrow, Thursday, February 16, 7pm

SVA Alumni (and library student workers) Out In The World


Looking through the Etsy store at MFA Computer Art and library staff alumna, Tamisha Anthony, got me thinking about some of our past student workers (visit her store and check out her whimsical cards for various occasion, starring Billy Buck, a grumpy goat with a sense of humor). One of the perks of working at SVA is the incredible creativity of everyone around us.

Here are the sites of a few of our recent grads you should take a look at:
