A Message from the Dean I write this at a time when Louisiana is once again suffering from a natural disaster of historic proportion, and I am both touched and proud of the way our people have come together to help one another in these devastating times. We need time to grieve and heal—yet life goes on, and another school year is upon us.

The fall 2016 semester will be an unusual one, to say the least, as congress will address yet another budget shortfall. We at LSU recognize our crucial role in the state’s recovery, and we are eager to address these challenges and pave the way for future generations. Your continued support helps make everything possible, and we thank you.

In the pages you are about to peruse, we share some of the College of Art & Design’s activities and success stories from the past year. The college continues to change and grow as we improve and expand studios, facilities, and equipment. We strive to create new programs that address local, national, and global issues. We show what we can accomplish by working together, across disciplines, to tackle tough problems and improve lives through art and design. These pages also reflect how every gift matters as we work to meet LSU’s flagship goals of diversity, learning, discovery, and engagement. In 2015-16, our donors established a record number of new awards and scholarships. Your donations helped us bring internationally renowned artists and designers to campus, and we were able to send our faculty all over the world to exhibit their work and present their research.

Community Engagement Third- and fourth-year interior design students in a vertical studio taught by Associate Professor Phillip Tebbutt and Instructor John Campbell worked in the community of Franklin, Louisiana, to develop design concepts for a site at the former Center Theater, destined to become the Mayci Breaux Memorial Amphitheater. The students displayed and presented their work to community members, including Mayor Raymond Harris and Main Street Program Director Arlana Shields, and the project was promoted by the St. Mary and Franklin Banner Tribune.

The College of Art & Design promotes the engagement of faculty, staff, and students in reaching out to transform communities. Third-year Master of Landscape Architecture students in Associate Professor Austin Allen’s advanced topic studio (LA 7061) worked with the North Baton Rouge community and the adjacent city of Baker to reimagine the Baton Rouge Zoo. Keeping in mind the community’s concern about the economic loss that could happen in an already depressed area, the students proposed keeping the zoo in its current North Baton Rouge location. The project incorporated urban design strategies, such as water management and economic development in North Baton Rouge and the city of Baker.

A team of five third-year LSU School of Architecture students, led by Professional in Residence William Doran, won best in show at a design charette hosted by the Hattiesburg Art Council. The project focused on the rehabilitation of the former Hattiesburg American newspaper building recently donated to the Arts Council. The designs were displayed at the Hattiesburg Cultural Center during Spring Art Walk. Local community members provided input, reviewed the projects, and voted on the designs.

Assistant Professor Johanna Warwick took her studio and light class (ART 4941) to the A.C. Lewis YMCA, where students spent the day taking sports portraits of the children playing at the Y. “It was a great opportunity for our students to have real-world, hands-on experience shooting on location while giving back to the Baton Rouge community,” said Warwick. The students provided the participants with files and prints of their images.


Interdisciplinary Collaborations The College of Art & Design encourages interdisciplinary learning experiences so students develop divergent skill sets and a world perspective. Jason Crow, assistant professor of architecture, and Wayne Newhauser, professor and director of medical and health physics, are collaborating on methods to use 3-D printing to create more detailed phantoms (models used for imaging and radiation testing) to improve cancer radiation therapies.
