DUE November 1
In preparation for class on Wednesday:
1) bring your completed in-design document on a CD to class to turn in. Recall, it should include images, URL (optional but highly recommended for time based), UPDATED statement, resume, and bio.
2) a URL of your current online presence to be evaluated during class.
Research on what you think you will do next:
Due November 1
Find information about one of the areas listed below including what they request and in what format.
o Graduate Schools (Contacts, applications, materials needed, GRE specs, requirements, etc.)
o Gallery or Museums (Contacts, gallery names, materials needed, cover letters, etc.)
o Industry or freelance/project based work (Contacts, company names, materials needed, cover letters, etc.)
o An interesting combination of the above
What you turn in:
1) Condensed representation of your research, which depends on the area you are researching. We will discuss possibilities in class.
2) Your ³to do² list to follow through with your chosen path. Again, this will vary based on your area. For example, graduate school will require a GRE. Where and when will you take it? Freelance work will require a nice brochure of the kind of work you do. What are your ideas for the content?
Enter a Juried show:
Deadline November 1, but I encourage you to do this sooner.
Prepare a show / festival application package and send it.
You will need to document the process. Each show will differ, so what you hand in will vary. Ideally, I will be able to review before you submit. All assignments will include:
o The call for participation
o What you will enter (slides, disc, online submission include a b/w printout of file, etc). Clarification: This is the actual THING, not just listing it.
o Application (if online, printout of submission page)
o Support materials (depending on show, essay, statement, check)
See ³Juried Shows² on the class site for possibilities
