Corrugated Alphabet at the Hogue Gallery

This month at TU my Design II class had the opportunity to work alongside famous artist James Grashow on his exhibition for the Hogue Gallery. The project involved large cardboard versions of the alphabet and when I say large, I mean large.

Many of the letters actually reach the ceiling!

The whole project was completed with just cardboard, glue and tape and it was a lot of fun to do. My group was in charge of the letter “S” and I’m quite proud of the end result. 

These photos don’t nearly do justice to the exhibit so I definitely recommend you come down to TU to check it out! The exhibit will remain on display till February 21 and if you would like to learn more about the artist behind the project James Grashow, watch his documentary The Cardboard Bernini or check out his website. It continues to amaze me the opportunities I have here at TU, and I hope when it comes time to choose colleges that you deeply consider TU. If you would like more information on the exhibit, check out this link. Hope you all enjoy!

Zarrow Center for Art and Education

The Henry Zarrow Center for Art and Education, located in the Brady District in Tulsa, opened to the public yesterday. The first floor houses a gallery for exhibits from Gilcrease Museum, TU graduate art students, and guest artists. The second floor includes classrooms for art education outreach, and TU graduate students use the third floor as studio space. We can’t wait for the upcoming events!

Forward-Thinking

What are TU students like?

I get this question a lot. The answer comes quickly… diverse. ambitious. forward-thinking. Those are the kinds of students I work with every year, and those are the kinds of students who choose to enroll at TU.

Our campus is diverse in that we have students from all of the country and all over the world. The majority of our students come from outside of the state of Oklahoma, and 19% of this year’s freshmen class is international.

Our students are ambitious. They tend to have multiple interests. They double major or pick up a few minors or complete certificate programs. They study abroad and participate in research projects. They join clubs and organizations, serve as leaders, and volunteer in the community. Their schedules and accomplishments are impressive.

Finally, our students are forward-thinking. This is the university for students who want to change the world and are eager to get started. This concept of forward-thinking is the reason why I do what I do. This is the reason I work in college admissions, and the reason I work at TU. Because the students I help enroll each year are the future leaders of the world. As a campus community, TU tries to give you all of the tools you need so that you really can get started today.

I wonder what you will accomplish if you come to TU? It gives me goose-bumps thinking about it.
