First Collection 2010: Syd Carpenter

Professor of Studio Art Syd Carpenter welcomed the artists in the Class of 2014 - those who "acknowledge yourselves as such" and those who "haven't as yet." That latter group, she suggested, could include "engineer artists, linguistic artists, mathematician artists, artists who study religion, historian artists, artists as economists and sociologists, artists as scientists. The philosopher and psychologists artists. Anyone who can’t help but see the family of things in sharp detail and having looked, make something of it. I know you’re here." Joining Professor Carpenter at the event were President Rebecca Chopp, Deivid Rojas '11, and Dean of Students Liz Braun.
