Alumni & Careers

“I moved to NYC right after Denison. I contacted one of the visiting Artist whom I met during my time in Denison, and he offered me an internship position at an independent print shop operated within the university he taught at. I met many established artists through working there, and learned to print and proof their work, and also met many other young artist friends. I went to graduate school after a few years, where I chose an interdisciplinary program and curriculum. This choice was shaped by my time at Denison, I was really shaped by the liberal art education, where you are encouraged to study different interests within and beyond the art department. I find that a contemporary art practice combines different knowledge, discipline, and interests and a broad education is necessary. I believe Denison introduced me to, and provided me with the foundation of research practice that I pursue today.”
