Papageorge photographs on view

The photographs of Professor Tod Papageorge, who has headed the photography department at the School of Art since 1979, are on display at a gallery in New York. "Passing through Eden -- Photographs of Central Park" may be viewed at the Pace/MacGill Gallery on 57th Street through May 12. A book of Papageorge's work is scheduled to be published this spring. During Papageorge's tenure at the School of Art, the photography department has produced an unusually high proportion of major American photographers, including Lois Conner ’81MFA, Gregory Crewdson ’88MFA, Tim Davis ’01MFA, Philip-Lorca diCorcia ’79MFA, and John Pilson ’93MFA.

School website extends its reach

The School of Art continues to develop its wiki website, on which alumni may submit content or link their own pages. (For a Yale Alumni Magazine news item, see Webwatching.) The site may be accessed at, but in order to link or submit content alumni must request a username by first e-mailing This website changes daily, with individuals sometimes adding information and providing a calendar of events on an hourly basis. With the addition of alumni sites, this should become one of the punchiest places to view contemporary art at Yale University and on the Web.

Open studios welcome visitors

Every May the Yale School of Art opens its individual student spaces in painting, sculpture, graphic design, and photography to the public during its Sunday Open Studios. This year's open studio event takes place on May 13. This event allows the Yale community and the public to examine student work, installations, and often performance pieces, and see some of the facilities such as the print shop, digital labs, and shops in Hammond Hall (the sculpture building). During this time, the graphic design thesis show will be on view in the Green Hall gallery rooms.
