As we look forward to the winter break, I’d like to thank everyone for their hard work and patience this semester as we continue to grapple with the effects of the pandemic. Challenging as these circumstances are, is it is clear from the accomplished and inspiring work presented by our students in end-of-semester critiques that our community remains deeply committed to the practice of art-making and resilient in these times of disruption and uncertainly.
To our amazing faculty and staff – you continue to be extraordinary in your care for and commitment to our students; as practitioners and educators, you lead by example with strength, intelligence, compassion, and empathy – thank you for making us all feel proud to be part of this community.
Wishing you all a peaceful and restorative winter break, and looking forward to seeing everyone in 2022!
