Davey Whitcraft: 2011-12 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

In Fall 2012 I received a Faculty Development grant for travel (plane ticket) and accommodations (room from airbnb website) in New York City for attendance at the New York Art Book Fair at Moma PS1 (Sep 27th-Oct 2nd).

The Book fair includes the presence of distributors, publishers, initiatives and authors of art and art-related publications worldwide as well as lectures and presentations by designers and artists whose practices include publishing. Design programs such as Werkplaatz Typographie and Yale MFA Graphic Design also had presentation spaces in PS1 that included student projects. These programs have similar pedagogical aims to the OTIS MFA Graphic Design Department of which I am also faculty, therefore it was useful to see the student outcomes and be able to discuss the work with students and coordinators in person.
