Relationships that resonate within faculty art practices

How does the human connection motivate and enrich art making? Conversations, relationships, and ideas shared in various ways become significant influences of inspiration within the artistic process. For this exhibit, we asked art faculty members to reflect on the relationships that have resonated with them and how they are reflected within their own work. Who inspires you? Sources of Inspiration shines a light on the current and exceptional art being made by PSU Art Faculty members

How can art bring awareness and change to environmental issues?

PSU’s Art and Environment First Year Seminar students explore the power of art to inspire activism. Students researched various endangered animal species and created an accompanying art installation. Keeping in mind that the exhibit as well as the artworks can bridge understanding and raise awareness, students worked with Museum of the White Mountains staff to design, plan, and install Vanishing Act.
