Several members of the SVA community have recently been getting their work out far past the five boroughs of New York. MAT Art Education Department faculty member Michael Filan is participating in “Artist as Teacher,” an exhibition of work by artists who also serve as educators, at The Studio in Armonk, New York, through Sunday, November 19. Alumnus, faculty member and donor to the Alumni Society Auction Billy Sullivan (1968 Fine Arts) is out of state with an exhibition of new painting work titled, appropriately enough, “New Work,” at the Rebecca Ibel Gallery in Columbus, Ohio, through Saturday, October 28.
Going overseas, alumnus Kitty Lin (BFA 2006 Computer Art) has won both the Technical Arts Gold Prize and the Proton Creative Gold Prize at the Taiwan International Animation Festival. Lin recieved $3,000 and a 42-inch LCD monitor for her short animated film, The Sky Bar. The Taiwan International Animation Festival draws an audience of 30,000 people each year and presents cutting-edge animated work from across the globe.
