The Visual & Critical Studies blog has been idle for a few days while our Systems Administrator Justin Elm has been fine-tuning its new look. Justin has streamlined the layout and made it more consistent with the VCS Tumblr and Flickr, and moved some information around to integrate the blog more closely with the VCS website. He’s also streamlined our URL to visualandcriticalstudies.com (though the old URL at visualandcriticalstudies.wordrpress.com is still active, and will automatically redirect to the new address).
The 2012/2013 academic year at the School of Visual Arts ended early last week, and the class of 2013 is getting ready for the commencement ceremonies that will take place this Thursday at Radio City Music Hall. Over the next few weeks, I will gradually return to my usual summertime schedule of posting new updates to the blog every five or six days. I’ve got a lot of new material to present, including images from recent events such as the VCS open studios, updates on what some of our alumni are doing, and news about student and faculty exhibitions. I’ll be back in a day or so with my first summer post, with several more to follow over the course of the week as things wind down for the year.
