  • Lawrence Presents at College Art Conference

    February 8, 2011

    MFA Professor Deborah F. Lawrence leads a panel discussion with artist Susan N. Platt on “The New Agit Prop: Artists Expose Political Fictions” at the 99th annual College Art Association conference in New York City on February 10. Scholars from five universities are participating in this discussion of how different art media are used for political ends.  Lawrence, whose art has appeared in Art in America,The Washington Post, Seattle Times, Rolling Stone, and Time Magazine, has exhibited widely throughout the United States, and is a Creative Capital Fellowship Grantee. She has been on the faculty in the MFA in Arts Leadership program since 2009. 

     “I use collage as a political and psychological tool,” she said, “and find support in the historical tradition of collage as a medium which originated out of the political outrage and detachment experienced by European artists following World War I.”

    College Art Association promotes the visual arts through scholarship and instruction at higher education institutions and publishes Art Journal and Art News,

    The Fine Arts Department in the College of Arts Sciences offers several undergraduate degrees, including visual arts,photography, digital art and design, and art history and an MFA in Arts Leadership.
