Around SVA

April 11, 2003

A Dedication
An installation by students from the continuing education course, The Artists’ Book: A Collaborative Project, is on view through April 25 in the exhibition area that adjoins the Division of Continuing Education office at 209 East 23 Street. The handmade book project, T1/T2, was guided by SVA instructor Andrew Castrucci and created as a memorial to September 11. The unbound books evoke the image of paper flying in the wind and the back cover of T1 holds dust from Ground Zero. The exhibition extends to an East 23 Street newsstand that is plastered with anti-war posters designed by students from the course. The themes of loss and tribute were compounded for these students following the death of their classmate, Henry Zayas, who passed away on March 14, 2003, while the books were in the final stage of production. The installation is dedicated to him.

Actor, producer, and writer, Richard Dreyfuss will visit SVA for a Q & A on April 16 at 3:30 pm in the SVA Amphitheater, 209 East 23 Street, 3rd floor.

The Westside Gallery presents Insert Body Here, featuring the work of four SVA students; April 10 – 21. There will be a reception for the artists on April 14, from 5 – 7pm.

PDN 30

There will be a photography panel discussion, “Your Picture, Your Career,” on April 15 in the SVA Amphitheater, 209 East 23 Street, 3rd floor. Featured guests include
