SVA faculty members continue to make news with their achievements. BFA Computer Art Department instructor Jeffrey Lerer has just won a production grant from the New York State Council on the Arts. Lerer was awarded a 2006-07 Individual Artists Film/New Media Production Grant for his long-term, ongoing animation project Manuscript Fragments Found at the Gilbert Hotel.
Also, Elinor Carucci, a member of the BFA Photography Department faculty, has a new exhibition at Edwynn Houk Gallery, 745 Fifth Avenue. The photographer, who recently published a collection of images called Diary of a Dancer (Steidl Publishing), will be showing a series of intimate personal and family portraits at the gallery, through Saturday, October 21.
