32nd Student Show


Juror: Anne Pasternak

Anne Pasternak has been the President and Artistic Director of Creative Time since 1994. Based in New York, Creative Time presents innovative art in the public realm, initiating a dynamic conversation among artists, sites and audiences, with projects that enliven public spaces with free and powerful expression. During Pasternak’s tenure, the organization has increased its commitment to artists working with untried media and has offered established artists fresh opportunities to experiment and engage new audiences. Renowned projects under her artistic direction range from exhibitions and performances in the historic Brooklyn Bridge Anchorage, new sculptures in Grand Central Station, paintings in Coney Island and skywriting over Manhattan to the Tribute in Light, the twin beacons that illuminated the former World Trade Center site six months after 9/11, in honor of the lives lost there. Pasternak has been committed to initiating projects that give artists the opportunity to innovate their practice, celebrate New York life, and reflect on contemporary society while engaging millions of people with art that permeates everyday urban life. In addition to her work at Creative Time, Pasternak curates independent exhibitions and contributes essays to cultural publications. She lectures extensively throughout the United States and Europe.

School Director’s Statement

CONGRATULATIONS to the students included in the 32nd Annual Juried USF Student Art Exhibition. I know that the faculty joins me in sharing in this celebration. Through your imagination and critical thinking, you bring a unique vision and contribution to research in the visual arts at the University.

The arts have been instrumental in the maturation of the University and, indeed, the entire Tampa Bay region. The Student Exhibition features many artists who are the future cultural leaders of the community – and beyond. Increasingly, our students are becoming active artists in cities across the US.

Thanks to all of the staff members of the Museum as well as the students who have worked on this exhibition. Also thanks to the faculty, staff, institutions, and private citizens who have provided support and awards for our students and this exhibition. Your belief in our mission during these particularly challenging financial times is gratifying.

A very special thanks to the juror this year, Anne Pasternak, who thoroughly reviewed the submitted artworks, met with our students and provided an insightful lecture.
I am always struck by how fortunate we all are to be so thoroughly engaged in the best of both worlds: learning and art. We welcome the community to our annual celebration. Enjoy!

Museum Director’s Statement

Each year a museum professional or artist is invited to campus to curate or select work for the student show. The 32nd Annual USF Juried Student Art Exhibition offers emerging artists the opportunity to see their work presented in the environment of a museum. The USF community of faculty, students and staff and the broader Tampa Bay community can see the exceptional talent of our students, nurtured by the faculty of the School of Art and Art History.

Over the past 31 years we have been fortunate to have our students’ artwork reviewed by many distinguished artists and scholars, including Marcia Tucker (now deceased), Roberta Smith, The Guerilla Girls, The Art Guys, Jerry Saltz, Elyse Goldberg, Allan McCollum, Robert Stackhouse and numerous others.

This year, Anne Pasternak visited the campus to select the exhibition and designate the awards from over 150 works submitted. Ms. Pasternak is the President and Artistic Director of Creative Time, an arts organization based in New York that organizes, commissions and presents innovative art that explores ideas that shape society designed for public sites.

I extend my appreciation and thanks to Anne for traveling to Tampa and for her thoughtful review of our students’ work and for her provocative talk on the mission and projects of Creative Time. The exhibition demonstrates the strength and diversity of style and approach of our student artists. Thanks to the Contemporary Art Museum staff, for once again organizing the exhibition: Alexa Favata, Julie Ayers, Don Fuller, Peter Foe, David Waterman, Randy West, Shannon Annis, David Reutter. Izabel Galliera is recognized for making the juror’s arrangements and itinerary. Tony Palms designed and installed the exhibition with his staff — Denton Crawford, Vincent Kral, R.J. Romero, Danielle Conkling and intern Dusty Laurent. Becca Nelson is acknowledged for organizing the reception and related special events. In addition, I thank the staff at Graphicstudio, Kristin Soderqvist, Noel Smith and Janie Campbell, for assisting Anne Pasternak with her visit and presentations.

Each year, a group of loyal friends from the community along with the faculty and staff of the School of Art and Art History, and Graphicstudio, join the museum in recognizing the outstanding quality of our art students by contributing monetary awards. We are very appreciative of this support, as it adds to the vitality and excitement of the exhibition. Please note the names of the generous contributors listed in this brochure.

Congratulations to all the artists in the exhibition and to the award recipients.
