PART II, Enter a Juried show
Due November 08
Prepare a show / festival application package and send it.
Types of entries will vary, so it is up to you to present to me the package you sent or will send, whatever makes the most sense for your scenario. For example, if you uploaded a bunch of digital files, turn them in on a disk. Include a URL so I can see the site. If the show is snail mail based, turn in slides or a disk with your entry(s) and turn in the prospectus.
NOTE: You must at least give me a prospectus for the show you entered. I prefer a printout but I will accept it on your disk with submissions or as a URL.
It is up to you to show me that you completed the application with all the parts. I will accept this assignment any time up to November 08th.
PART III, Summary of Artist Visit
DUE Nov 22
You are required to attend at least one artist lecture or workshop during the semester and write a summary of the experience.
If you already attended a lecture, write the summary NOW to save you from the crunch at the end of the semester.
PART IV, Finals
Due Nov 29 or Dec 6
Art Presentation: Prepare and present a final body of your artwork
This can be work towards your BFA exit show, but think of it as a cohesive body that goes beyond the show and defines you as an artist. This can be an animation, a game, prints, an interactive work, a web piece, sculpture, photograph, or whatever you feel defines your artistic voice the best. If it is work towards your BFA show, it should be digital, however, you may show any media that you feel are strongest for THIS presentation.
Turn in specific statement with your presentation. This could be used for your BFA show.
10-minute presentations will happen on Nov 29 or Dec 6.
Final Professional Packet (due Nov 29th)
The final Professional Packet is your presentation for a job, gallery, graduate school, etc. It is unlike your portfolio (Art Presentation) as this includes materials to get a job while your art portfolio is just about your art work and artistic voice. Final packet is due Nov 29th, but various drafts of the parts will be due throughout the semester. It will consist of:
1. Statement: One general statement. (NOTE, the one for your final body of work will be due when you do your Art Presentation.)
2. Artist Biography
4. Cover Letter
6. Visual Material
Electronic Portfolio, Prints, Demo Reel, Slides in presentation form, depending on your focus.
7. (Optional) Miscellaneous
Promotional material such as buttons, stickers, business cards, brochures
PART V, Optional Re-evaluation
After you have made the suggested changes, you may re-submit your resume, bio, statement, or cover letter for my comments. You may submit via email or in hard copy form. These will not be graded, it is only so you can get more feedback if you wish.
