FIELD WORK

Offered by most departments for academic credit, field work enables students to examine the way the theories and the practical experiences of a particular discipline interact. It provides opportunities for observation and participation which are not ordinarily available in classwork. Depending on their academic interests, students undertake internships in a variety of organizations and agencies in the local community and other places.

  • Exhibition: XL: Large-Scale Paintings from the Permanent Collection
    10:00 AM to 5:00 PM - Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center Temporary Exhibition Galleries Exhibition: XL: Large-Scale Paintings from the Permanent CollectionIn the mid-twentieth century, New York School painters pushed the boundaries of museum walls to their limits. In 1947, at the height of the Abstract Expressionist era, the Museum of Modern Art mounted an exhibition called Large-Scale Modern Paintings; to qualify for inclusion, paintings had to measure at least six feet in one direction. Today, a similar set of criteria has been applied to the Art Center's permanent collection to arrive at a group of monumental paintings that are at once impressive and daunting. These larger-than-life canvases invite an extraordinary visual experience in which the viewer is immersed in the field of painting. XL, which includes work by Kevin Appel, Roger Brown, Nancy Graves, Joyce Kozloff, Alfred Leslie, Agnes Martin, Joan Mitchell, Jules Olitski and others, is a testament to the enduring visual power of mural-sized painting.
