The College of Visual Arts, Theatre & Dance is proud to congratulate our own Department of Art Faculty, Owen Mundy, who was recently featured in several news articles all over the web such as TIME , The New York Times, USA Today, Wired UK, The Daily Dot, Vice: Motherboard and many more for his project, "I Know Where Your Cat Lives". 


On June 27th and 28th, the Department of Art Education’s Art Therapy Program hosted its second summer weekend course taught by visiting professor Dr. Paige Asawa who came all the way from Loyola Marymount University (LMU) in Los Angeles!


FSU students have the exciting opportunity to work in an historic collaboration between the FSU Department of Art History and the Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research at two of the most significant archaeological sites for North Florida: The Letchwort-Love and Lake Jackson Mounds State Parks. 


Florida State University Interior Design Department‘s Faculty members Kenan Fishburne and Jill Pable are providing pro bono design consultation services for the Comprehensive Emergency Services Center project in Tallahassee. 


The School of Dance will be hosting the Interdisciplinary Performance Symposium which will be held on October 11th from 9am – 5pm in Montgomery Hall. The event will bring together a variety of academic disciplines across FSU’s campus to share performance research. 


The Orlando Shakespeare Theater will kick-off its 26th Season with Les Miserables which features the Florida State University School of Theatre Alums Davis Gaines (BA 1976, FSU Grad Made Good 1990) and Michael Hunsaker (BFA Music Theatre, 1997).


The Facility for Arts Research (FAR) at Florida State University is offering its first Grasshopper class and we invite you to participate. In this intensive 3-day class you’ll learn to utilize Grasshopper, a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools.

The Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography (MANCC) has received a National Endowment for the Arts, Art Works grant to support the return of AXIS Dance Company for a new research and development residency project in October 2014.


The Florida State University Athletics Department recently rolled out an updated logo this spring. Master Craftsman Studio was contacted shortly after the announcement to begin the fabrication of two large faux bronze logos. 


Interesting things arrive when artist David Peck parks his truck on the Museum entryway. Peck delivers and installs his mixed media work Rollaway, 2013, wood, aluminum, steel, 96 x 106 x 180 inches for the 2014 Tallahassee International.


The Museum enjoyed a record number of visitors totaling 384,323 during its 2013-14 fiscal year, which was a 12 percent increase from 2012-2013 and 27 percent more than 2011-12.
