School of Art

Our CEO went to Syracuse so we may be a little biased. So instead of giving our opinion, we want SU: VPA to share with you what they believe. So, here it is:

"We celebrate being a dynamic art school within the context of a major university. We offer unique and exciting opportunities for students who are passionate about art in all of its diverse possibilities. We teach the next generation of artists--those who are adventurous, complex, precocious, innovative, noisy, reflective, curious, socially conscious, and dedicated to a life in the visual arts."

Rebecca Purdum

We love Rebecca’s, class of 1981, deep colors and expression on canvasses because they grab us in our guts. It’s no wonder she has exhibited at 48 galleries and museums including Tilton Gallery in New York (which includes Ripton 92 in its catalogue) and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. And, she was  selected for the Whitney Bienniel at the Whitney Museum in New York City in 1991. She currently lives in Ripton, Vermont. A recently published price for one of Rebecca’s works indicates it was sold for approximately $6,000.

Sol LeWitt

How can you not be struck by Sol LeWitt’s, class of 1949, work? The fabric of his creations, the color mixtures, and the intensity of his brushstrokes makes for a great experience. He has worked in most mediums and was considered one of the fathers of conceptual art, where the idea, planning, and product process are more important than the result. 

A recently published report indicated that Sol’s 1995 work Wavy Brushstroke was sold for $749,000 at Sotheby’s in New York.

Bill Viola

One of the trailblazers for art in the video world, Bill, class of 1973 has focused his work on the part of moving images and sounds that envelops a participant with a total immersion of art.

Bill’s work has been shown in internationally acclaimed museums such as Whitney Museum, The Getty, and Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin.  His largest installation to date was developed for St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. Bill’s artwork can also be seen at the James Cohan Gallery in New York City.

A recently published report indicated that Bill’s Eternal Return was sold for $346,000 at Sotheby’s in New York.
