About: Today’s new artists, designers, and art historians require a broader spectrum of learning that goes beyond the traditional instruction and practice-based programs of the past. To better enable students to reach their creative potential in an increasingly competitive world, SUNY Buffalo State recently combined four of its five visual arts departments into one, creating the Department of Art and Design. The Burchfield Penney will mark the restructuring with A New Beginning, an exhibition featuring the full-time faculty in this newly formed creative force. Selected works will provide students, colleagues, and visitors with a glimpse into their imagination, professional perspectives, and greater insight into their contemporary approaches.
