Outside the Classroom: Work from the Teaching Artists of PCA&D
Nearly 20 Pennsylvania College of Art & Design faculty members and instructors from the College’s Center for Creative Exploration are featured in the College’s new Main Gallery exhibition, Outside the Classroom: Work from the Teaching Artists of PCA&D.
The faculty of PCA&D and its Center for Creative Exploration consists of a cohort of working artists, all with their own professional practice in their respective fields. Outside the Classroom honors that professional working artist status, while highlighting their individual and collective expertise. Exhibition submissions were open to all part-time and adjunct faculty, as well as instructors from the Center for Creative Exploration.
“The classroom is where skills are developed, techniques are honed, and process is evaluated,” says Alex Schaufele, Director of Exhibitions. “Rarely in these experiences do students get to spend time with their instructors' personal work. Instead the focus is on what the student creates. Outside the Classroom is an exciting opportunity for our students and colleagues at PCA&D and our larger community to see the work of the artists who teach here. It is my hope that this exhibition provides a glimpse into the creative minds of our instructors in a diverse array of media.”
Visitors to the gallery are required to follow the College’s Health & Safety guidelines, which include masking at all times. The full guideline protocols can be found at pcad.edu/daily-health-checklist.
