NYU Steinhardt Department of Art and Art Professions Expands Faculty, Gallery Exhibition Programs, and Global ArtSites

Over the past few years, the Steinhardt School has made a major new commitment to the Visual Arts, expanding faculty, and adding new facilities and courses in New York and abroad. These additions have moved the Department into the top ranks of University Art Departments.

New additions to the Art Department’s core faculty this year include:
• renowned painter Ross Bleckner
• conceptual artist Trisha Donnelly
• sculptor Carol Bove

They join other recently hired studio faculty Lyle Ashton Harris, Sue de Beer, Jesse Bransford, David Rimanelli, Kevin McCoy, and Maureen Gallace.

This fall, with artist and faculty member Peter Campus as Director, the Art Department’s newly renovated gallery spaces in Washington Square and the East Village will begin an expanded program of exhibitions and public events.

The Department’s 80 Washington Square East Galleries, on Washington Square Park, will host curated exhibitions, screenings, and performances throughout the year. The exhibition calendar will include:
• the New York debut of the Papunya Tula Aboriginal Artists from Australia
• a site-specific installation by photographer Charlie White in the Windows on Washington Square
• a survey of work by the legendary artist and performer Stuart Sherman
• an exhibition curated by critic and faculty member David Rimanelli
• the Department’s MFA Thesis Exhibitions in the spring

The Commons and Rosenberg Galleries and the Einstein Auditorium, located in the main Art Department Building in the East Village, will host public exhibitions, performances, and visiting artist talks each week.

In addition to changes at the New York campus, the Art Department has added new ArtSites to NYU’s global campuses in Berlin and Ghana. The ArtSites allow students to participate in international culture directly, working with the local artists’ communities. ArtSites offer advanced art courses, studio facilities, exhibition opportunities, and visiting artists programs. These ArtSites complement NYU’s wide range of study abroad sites in Paris, London, Shanghai, Prague, Florence, Buenos Aries, Tel Aviv, Madrid, and Beijing.

The NYU Steinhardt Department of Art and Art Professions offers BFA, MFA, and MA Programs in Studio Art, as well as MA Programs in Art Education, Visual Arts Administration, Art Therapy, and Costume Studies.
