Student Trip to New York City – April 2017

Faculty and students from Tarleton took a field trip to New York City in April of 2017.  Students got to see the Whitney Biennial, the Museum of Modern Art, the Met, the Brooklyn Museum and others. They visited for a couple hours with artists Josh Nierodzinski and Natasa Prjelvic to talk about graduate programs, residencies, and studio and professional practices.
