indicate what you did. You may also email me the assignment
Due: NOVEMBER 14
PART III: Professional Presentation Package
The final presentation package is not the final body of artwork. This package is your
presentation for a job, gallery, graduate school, etc. It includes the needed for an application.
Your package MUST include:
DUE: THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5
The package will be graded on its completeness, neatness, and professionalism. You must assume
that I am an HR representative who views tons of presentation packages. How will yours stand
out in a positive way? How do you best represent yourself and your work? This is what you would
bring to an interview!
- Artist Statement (General)
- Sample Cover Letter
- Other Visual Materials:
- Demo Reel
- Slides in presentation form
- Choice depends on your focus.
- You must include some instantaneous visuals, even if you are including a reel or a disk.
- (Optional) Miscellaneous:
- Business card (highly recommended!)
- Promotional material such as buttons, stickers, brochures
PART IV: Final Artwork Presentations
Prepare and present a final body of artwork. This can be work towards your BFA exhibition,
but think of it as a cohesive body that goes beyond the show and defines you as an artist.
This is not your presentation package. Your presentation should be professional, prepared, and
last 10 minutes. You should be ready to speak intelligently about your artwork. Work should be
hung, cued, or downloaded prior to start of class.
DUE: December 5, 10, or 12
Turn in an artist statement that goes with this body of work. You will just need to edit the
general statement that you already handed in. Of course, this statement should be laser printed
and on good paper.
