Speaking of faculty change--I would like to hear some comments about this
question. The University of Nevada is the college that I have had most
connection with lately, but it seems to me that college art instructors
have a giant prejudice against anything pretty. If you want a good review
or critique--your work had better be fairly violent and should contain a
liberal amount of vaginas and penises. I'm trying to decide if this is a
college thing or if professors just encourage it by making fun of anyone
who persues " pretty" art as being trite. I think there is a prejudice
that unless college art is shocking and sort of a break from their moral,
goody-goody high school experience--it isn't art. What do you think??Sid
