Through his work with Americorp, Jesse Bakey (BFA: Sculpture, 2012) collaborated with local sculptor John Anderson-Bicker and dozens of Dubuque citizens to create a beautiful mural and gorgeous sculpture at the new Dubuque Multicultural Family Center.
Students in Clarke's EDUC 351:1 Special Methods Art (secondary art methods) class are writing a teaching unit plan for the City of Dubuque's Art on the River public sculpture exhibition. When complete, the unit plan will be included on the City of Dubuque web site. The students—Chad Salisbury, Joe Turek, Katie Michael, and Lee Breitbach—selected an engaging concept and are writing individual lesson plans.
Last fall, the Clarke University Art Department participated in “Fall into Art”, a part of Dubuque downtown arts initiative. This off-site exhibition featured the work of current students, members of the faculty, and recent alum. Current students collaboratively created art around the theme of the Mississippi River.
This spring, students from Clarke's typography and layout class presented logo designs to the Fall Into Art Committee. Instructor Erin Hefel guided students in two courses (sophomores and juniors) to each create three logos for the presentation. Click here to view photos.
