  • Silva Selected as Visual Artist in Residence

    June 28, 2011

    The Fine Arts Department welcomes Carolina Silva as the Seattle University Visual Artist in Residence for 2011. Her appointment is for six months beginning July 05, 2011.

    Silva, a Fulbright Scholar from Spain, received her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, after receiving her Bachelor’s degree from Universidad Complutense in Madrid, Spain. She also attended the Artist Research Program at the Center for Contemporary Art, in Kitakyushu, Japan. Her work uses drawing, sculpture, and installation to bring to light the secrets and the unspeakable in surreal tableaux and images that take the ordinary into the fantastic.  

    “Silva brings to Seattle University a breadth of international exhibiting experience to share with students and faculty,” said Francisco Guerrero, Associate Professor of Visual Art.  

    Silva will discuss discussing the process and production of her collection of art work from the past 8 years, which includes drawing, printmaking, and ceramics, at 6 p.m., September 28, in Bannan Auditorium.  

    The SU Visual Artist in Residence program facilitates research and support for artists in their creative process. The residency provides artists with the valuable resources of time and space for open-ended investigation, experimentation, and collaboration and promotes new approaches to arts education, fosters community building, and provides a catalyst for social change.  

    The College of Arts and Sciences, the largest college in Seattle University, offers 33 undergraduate degrees and 7 advanced degrees, including an MFA in Arts Leadership.
