Department of Art’s Mechatronic Art 2 class, instructed by Assistant Professor Rob Duarte and Dr. Jonathan Clark, connects art and engineering; two disciplines that regularly merge throughout history yet, just as often, yield great thinkers with contrasting ways of thinking.

Art Education

Help Florida State University Art Therapy students provide therapeutic art experiences for families by donating to one of the active Spark FSU campaigns today: “Indigo Rising: Art Therapy with Refugees in Greece” and “Art Therapy – Exploring Identity with LGBT Youth!”

Art History

FSU Department of Art History doctoral candidate and Fulbright Fellow Carolina Alarcon is organizing a symposium to be held in June at the University of Valencia IHMC on the subject of “Art and Science in the Early Modern Period.”

Interior Architecture & Design

Join fellow alumni and friends of the Department of Interior Architecture & Design at NeoCON June 14, 2016. Mingle with fellow Noles and hear from Department Chair, Lisa Waxman, and Assistant Professor, Amy Huber, about recent activities and accomplishments.


Dance majors are physically active an average of 6-8 hours a day. The Dance Science Program started when Dr. Welsh identified the need to provide injury management consultations to dancers addressing the stresses of intensive physical training.


“The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey” produced by School of Theatre Alum and award-winning Broadway Producer Darren Bagert (BFA Music Theatre, 1992), has been nominated for the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Solo Performance.

Facility for Arts Research

Recently, Ben Carter, creator of podcast “Tales of a Red Clay Rambler”, invited Department of Art’s, Holly Hanessian, to be a guest host who interviewed Michael Eden, a former production potter with a foundation in conventional design and fabrication.

FSU / Asolo Conservatory

On Monday, May 2, 2016, twelve MFA candidates received their degrees from Scott Shamp, Associate Dean in the College of Fine Arts, in an intimate ceremony attended by family, friends, student sponsors and the Asolo Repertory Theatre company members.


Florida State University’s Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography (MANCC) has been awarded a $40,000 Art Works grant by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to support two artist residencies as part of their upcoming season.

Museum of Fine Arts

The Museum of Fine Arts “library” of three dimensional art objects has to be managed as an inventory: what the vital statistics of the objects are, where they are kept, whether they are checked out (to an exhibition) or snug and secure in the vault.

The Ringling

“The Art of Our Time” initiative was conceived to fulfill The Ringling’s promise by supporting contemporary artists through its budding residency program as well as performances and exhibitions that transform audience expectations.
