New Tyler Students Make Their Mark

August 29, 2012

Tyler’s newest students, both transfer students and members of the class of 2016, were welcomed to Temple University on Friday, August 24 with a convocation at Tyler.  This year they heard a welcome message from Dean Robert Stroker and inspirational words from Assistant Dean Carmina Cianciulli, who read parts of the 2012 commencement address written by 2012 Architecture Graduate Michelle Lanney.  Students played “Tyler,” a form of Bingo designed to help them get to know each other.  They also created self portraits on Post-it Notes, which are shown here as they are displayed in Tyler’s main green hallway.  Each student received a Tyler T-shirt designed by current Graphic Design major Carol Ly, which also had the new Arts @ Temple logo on the back.

Below is a slide show of some of the self-portraits created by Tyler’s newest students.

Tyler’s Living Learning Community Visits Art in City Hall

September 13, 2011

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Students from the Tyler School of Art Living Learning Community in Peabody Hall visited the Philadelphia City Hall last Friday to meet with Tu Huynh, City Hall Exhibitions Manager in the City of Philadelphia’s Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy.  Mr. Huynh talked to the students about the Art in City Hall program, which presents exhibitions that showcase contemporary artwork by professional and emerging Philadelphia visual artists. Then Mr. Huynh generously guided students through the current exhibitions at City Hall, Score! a juried exhibition of local art inspired by sports and Arts and Aging, a collaboration with the Department of Recreation, a juried exhibition of art by seniors from a network of senior centers throughout Philadelphia.  While touring City Hall, students were given a bit of a “behind the scenes tour” and allowed to visit some of the grand meeting rooms, including the Mayor’s Reception Room and the City Council Chamber.  The highlight of the trip was probably visiting Conversation Hall, which has a balcony leading to the North Portal of City Hall and two grand stairways, which are normally open only for special functions.  We got to go out to the balcony and see the historical Ceremonial and Legislative Entrance to the building, which faces north towards Temple University.

A special thank you to Tu Huynh, who was extremely generous with his time in showing us all the interesting architecture and taking us to some really special places in City Hall!

Tyler School of Art Parents Council

June 13, 2011

Starting this Fall, we are establishing a new Parents Council for the Tyler School of Art.  The goal will be to provide a community of parents to act as a resource in support of recruiting, fundraising, and networking with outside organizations.

The Parents Council will actively collaborate with Tyler’s Administration and Faculty to help foster the broader school’s mission. Examples of the potential activities the Parents Council could get involved with include:

  • Participate in recruiting events as an advocate for Tyler
  • Be a local resource for prospective students
  • Establish additional scholarships and grants
  • Engage outside speakers from corporations and the art world
  • Develop connections between Tyler and organizations as potential sources of internships and job opportunities
  • Bring new ideas to the Administration and Faculty to further enrich individual departments, the Tyler Art school and the Temple community

If you are a parent of an incoming student, current student or recent graduate, and would like to participate in some capacity or learn more,  please either . . .

Sign up on Facebook under the group Tyler School of Art Parents Council


E-mail us at:  tylerparents@gmail.com  

More information will be sent out on activities and events as we get closer to the Fall.  We welcome everyone’s input and participation!!!
