What are good graduate programs for studying technology?

Question by sheilasmith: What are good graduate programs for studying technology?
I received my B.A. in liberal arts and am interested in pursuing graduate studies that will be a nice mix of the liberal arts approach with science (mainly in the humanities, the arts, philosophy) and that will enable me to focus on studying technology in a broad range…(not anything extremely math/science specific)…the effects of technology on our world, the history of technology, where it is going, what we can do with it (good and bad), etc. Would love to hear of any programs you guys have heard good things about, especially some of those programs that may not be so well-known! Thanks!

Answer by PE2008
What would be the purpose of this graduate study? Do you think there is a market for graduates in History of Technology?

Uf you want to study Technology seriously for career preparation, there are MSIT (Industrial Technology) and MSTM (Technology Management) degrees. They all involve some math…

A fake, a fake, what is a fake, anyway?
Nothing is real, the only real things are the ones
that you can reproduce, and make millions of them.
Take a thing everybody knows, change it a bit, and claim it as yours.
This is what our world is about.
We can do it! This is what we should do.
I am Andy Warhol.
I could not participate to RomaEuropaWebFactory.
Noone cares about originality. Originality is just too hard to define.
Go to a supermarket, buy one of everything, and expose it in a gallery.
This is what we should do.
I am Andy Warhol.
I could not participate to RomaEuropaWebFactory."

Andy Warhol’s appropriations of the images and of the media, performed by mechanically reproducing commercial products and celebrity images in silkscreens, smooth paintings and facsimiles, poetically expressed some of the most striking and relevant approaches to art of the 20th century. Andy Warhol’s video was rejected from the videoart section of the RomaEuropa Web Factory.

"This is not original work!" was the scream of the Jury.

Andy Warhol now joined RomaEuropaFAKEFactory, here:

What’s your opinion on the Graphic Arts/ Art Direction/ Advertising field?

Question by Andrew: What’s your opinion on the Graphic Arts/ Art Direction/ Advertising field?
I’m only a junior in high school but I’m thinking about college and what I’d like to major in. I’m very interested and passionate about art and design. Right now I take a Drawing and Painting course and an Introduction to Digital Photography and Illustration Design course and they both are really interesting. I’ve really been looking into the Pratt Institute and the School of Visual Arts in NYC… so, any suggestions or comments on these schools and any advice in approaching these fields?

Best answer:

Answer by roses are piink
I know someone who went to SVA and majored in advertisement. She loved it. It’s also a good art school so yeah

As for Pratt, I visited there and it’s in Brooklyn. The school used to be a shoes factory back in the days, so it has that feel to it. You should go visit their campus one time! It’s not a huge campus. Pretty small in my opinion. It’s a really good school though and hard to get into. Theyre know for their architechtural programs. Both schools are very good schools. You should def look into it and do more research. Go to their websites and ask for catalogs.

Also when you go to high school, take an art class each year. When youre an underclassman, there are only so many electives you can take b/c you just wont have the advantage like that. When you’re jr/sr you can take like 3-4 electives. Right now, Im taking AP art and advanced drawing. I love the classes. The more art classes you take the more pieces you’ll have for your college portfolio, more experience, and it’ll look good in your application

NYC – American Folk Art Museum

NYC – American Folk Art Museum

The American Folk Art Museum opened December 11, 2001, coinciding with the three-month anniversary of the terror attacks on the World Trade Center. It was the first new art museum built from the ground up since the Whitney Museum of American Art opened in 1966.

The 30,000 square foot building, at West 53 Street, designed by Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects, is clad in sixty-three lightly textured tombasil panels (a white bronze alloy). An eight-level, 85-foot tall structure, it is capped by a skylight above a grand interior stair connecting the third and the fourth floors, with dramatic cut-throughs at each floor to allow natural light to filter into the galleries and through to the lower levels. The lustrous, sculptural facade is the product of a manual fabrication process evocative of the hands-oriented approach characteristic of folk art – its panels are cast by pouring molten metal directly into gated forms on the concrete floor of the foundry. The faceted panels, which appear stonelike and metallic at the same time, create different visual effects catching the light of the sun as it rises and sets, east and west along 53rd Street.

The galleries on the four top floors of the building vary in scale from intimate spaces to allow for a personalized art experience to open areas for the display of larger works. Art is also integrated into public spaces, such as the lobby, stairwells, and hallways, utilizing a system of niches throughout the building that offers interaction with a changing group of folk art objects beyond the gallery setting. Visitors are able to move between building levels by using three different staircases – a layout that encourages multiple paths of circulation and gives the visitor the feeling of an architectural journey. Adding a sense of warmth to the building, the gallery floors are made of wood set into concrete. Seven of the eight levels of the new building are entirely dedicated to public space. The mezzanine level houses a café overlooking a two-story atrium and offering views of 53rd Street. At the entrance level is the Museum Shop, with access during non-museum hours via a separate exit to the street.

How to work things out with your new art agent ?

Question by David Kilika: How to work things out with your new art agent ?
I have been approach by someone who is willing to be my art agent and frankly, its great news, but I never worked with an agent before and I have many questions, I hope someone can help me out a little,here we go :

What exactly should a art agent do for the artist ? What make a good agent outside contact ? What percentage of the sell should the agent ask for ? Does this change if its sold directly or in a gallery ? When selling prints, should this percentage change ?

Best answer:

Answer by Beloved One
I don’t have time to go into a lot of it, but as an agent the best advice I can give is to ask for COMPLETE list of past and present clients, not just their success stories. And then call them individually and ask them how much the agent actually sold. many agents aren’t worth their salt and will not work or advertise for clients, but are more than happy to take the percentage- when you find a good agent you’ll know because they’ll sell things and you’ll make more with them than without
