Display Opportunities in the Illustration Department

Illustration Students and Faculty Members,

You might notice how fantastic our display cases are looking these days.  That’s thanks in part to Illustration Faculty member Noel Claro, who has taken on the huge task of scheduling exhibitions and shows in the 8th floor lobby.  On display now is:

–an entire case devoted to Frankensteinia, in conjunction with the Illustration Department Summer Reading Project.  Illustration Faculty and Alum Les Kanturek curated this case with fabulous paraphenalia and publications from his own collection.  Check out his Concepts blog for entries about other Frankenstein-related information.

–a case devoted to work by our two newest faculty members: James Gallagher and Isabelle Dervaux.  James will be teaching Digital Presentation and Isabelle will be teaching Senior Thesis.

–two cases devoted to international publications picked up by our full-time faculty members Nora Krug and Ben Katchor, as well as some collected by Steven Guarnaccia, our chair.

–a case full of fascinating current works by current students Zach Zezima and Ana Mouyis.

So of course, you’re wondering: I’m an Illustration faculty member/student!  How do I get my work in those cases?  Look no further.  Instructions for the whole process are after the jump!
