KUTZTOWN UNIVERSITY

ART DEPARTMENT SENIOR EXHIBITION

2020 VIRTUAL EDITION


For the first time in our university’s history, we will not be able to celebrate our graduating art majors with an exhibition and family reception in a professional gallery setting. In March 2020, our students, faculty, and staff learned that due to the Corona virus, all in-person events and classes would be canceled or shifted to online. Our students quickly gathered their art supplies from their studios and hastily moved out of their apartments, hoping to be able to salvage some kind of end of senior year experience. In the midst of all of this, we asked our seniors to submit their best work online with hopes of creating a digital exhibition maybe even reaching more people than a traditional show would. We hope to someday in the future be able to install the exhibition on our campus, but in the meantime this virtual gallery will give us space to recognize the talents of our graduating seniors. In keeping with past traditions to offer our students a more realistic experience, the Studio Art Department’s Senior Exhibition is critically curated by an outside professional. This spring, 48 students presented 125 artworks online to Dr. William B. Crow, PhD, Director of the Lehigh University Art Galleries and Professor of Practice in the Department of Art, Architecture, and Design. 65 pieces were juried in to the exhibition. Prior to his new appointment at Lehigh, William Crow was the inaugural Educator in Charge of Teaching and Learning at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, New York. In that role he oversaw programs serving over 500,000 visitors annually, including programs and resources for schools, educators, families, teens, college and universities, as well as pedagogy and training for all teaching that occurred in the Museum’s three sites.  He has held academic appointments at New York University, Johns Hopkins University, and The New School for Social Research.    Dr. Crow has spoken nationally and internationally on topics related to museums, education, and digital media, and co-authored the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) publications

Unbound by Place or Time: Museums and Online Learning (2009), All Together Now: Museums and Online Collaborative Learning (2010), and Teaching the Museum (2014). He was named the 2014 Eastern Region Art Museum Educator of the Year by the National Art Education Association, and has served as a panelist for the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) as well as a peer reviewer for the Museum Assessment Program (MAP) for AAM and the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA). He received the 2015 University Excellence in Teaching Award at Johns Hopkins, and in 2017 he was awarded a Fulbright Global Specialist Award to conduct professional development for museum staff in South America. Dr. Crow holds a B.A. in Romance Languages and Art from Wake Forest University, an M.F.A. in Painting from Hunter College of The City University of New York, an M.S.Ed. in Museum Education Leadership from Bank Street, and a Ph.D. in Cognitive Science from Columbia University. He is also an alumnus of the Getty Leadership Institute, Museum Leaders: The Next Generation Program (2006), the Columbia University School of Business Executive Leadership Program (2016) and the National Guild for Community Art Education Leadership Institute (2016).  Dr. Crow’s current research interests include decision-making and evaluative judgments in the arts, epistemological development, and the cognitive benefits of sketching. We thank Dr. Crow for his critical eye, and we would like to commend this particular graduating class not only for their creative talents, but their graciousness and resolve. We hope to see you all soon! Karen Stanford Director of University Galleries and Community Outreach Kutztown University
