This week, several SVA alumni and faculty members were tapped for notable honors. The Whitney Museum of American Art announced the lineup for the 2006 Whitney Biennial, and included in the list of selected artists are Jutta Koether (BFA Fine Arts Department faculty), Marilyn Minter (MFA Fine Arts Department faculty) and Billy Sullivan (1968 Fine Arts; BFA Photography Department faculty). All three artists will have work on view at the Whitney when the Biennial opens on Thursday, March 2.
In addition, Out magazine included John Arsenault (BFA 1999 Photography) in this year’s Out 100. The list is a collection of the year’s most interesting, influential, and newsworthy lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. Out described Arsenault’s work as “warm, luminous images…meant to capture fleeting moments of free expression on the road of life.”
