In an era when much contemporary art cannot be contained within the traditional categories of painting and sculpture, and when technology is transforming the production of visual images, the Studio Arts Program at Bard has expanded the breadth of its offerings while retaining a strong core of courses that provide a firm grounding in basic techniques and principles.
It’s Not Only What You See
“I tend to like the confusion of something. Often with works, the thing is not only what you see. Its description and its actual importance and quality are sometimes slightly someplace else.” —Artist in Residence Dave McKenzie
