    New York-based artist Polly Apfelbaum’s work has situated itself as a hybrid of painting, sculpture, and installation over a career spanning 30 plus years. Exploring the intricacies of color, Apfelbaum weaves her way, both literally and conceptually, through ideas of Minimalism, Pop aesthetics, and Color Field painting to blur the lines between two and three dimensional art making.

Share / Access Course e-Portfolios

A course ePortfolio is created by a faculty member as a way to share digital course content with students. In many ways it is similar to creating a custom website for the course. It allows for more custom design and multi-media functionality than the CMS.
