College glass programs
 
Is there any comprehensive listing of BFA and MFA programs? The list on the GAS site is defintely NOT comprehensive, doesn't even include the BIG boys. Or does this thread need to turn into the list?

Greg, I'm not sure this list is any better than GAS's, but you could give it a try.

Greg Frankhouser 01-23-2004 04:45 PM

Thanks Rich, It did give me one more. I think I'll have to start one. These are all my memory can hold, folks please add more. Maybe Pete can add the list to the schools area when we're done.

Kent State, BFA MFA
Ohio State BFA MFA
Mass Arts ? MFA
Risd ? MFA
Washington U St Louis, BFA sort of
SIU Edwardsville BFA
SIU Carbondale BFA MFA
Alfred BFA MFA
Virginia Commonwealth BFA MFA
RIT BFA MFA
Cal Arts BFA MFA
U Wisc Madison BFA MFA
Tulane BFA MFA
Cleveland Institute of Art BFA
Bowling Green BFA MFA

AA, from Cali

AA In art offered at
Santa Ana College, Santa Ana CA
Palomar College, San Marcos
Santa Monica College, Santa Monica, CA

Chadron State College (Chadron, NE) BA in 3D with glass emphasis (this sounds like the one you listed as a "sort of", but it's where I started in 1991

Hastings College (Hastings, NE) BFA I think

U.N.K. (Kearney, NE) last I knew had BFA, but rumors it's recently phased out or will be soon

Kansas;

Emporia State University (Emporia, KS) BFA ONLY


Carmegie mellon, USED TO have a glass prgram.

Detroit; CCA C : Great People , great place. But still only a BFA.


This whole inter-discplinary art thing is really adding to my search. Some schools won't even tell you what they offer, until you've hit 5-6 pages.

Please don't be offended if I forgot, never knew yours.

UWRF
 
I came out of The University of Wisconsin River Falls with a BS. This is one of the oldest glass colleges in the U.S. (started by Doug Johnson in the mid 60's) and has no MFA program. If your an undergrad this is a great atvantage..... the shop is all yours. If you are able to get in state residency status (Wis. or Min.), it is also one of the cheapest. It made me what I am today.

Liam Bowers 09-03-2005 09:41 PM

I am vaguely aware of the NYU Fine Arts department being in the beginning stages of creating a glass major in association with Urban Glass. There are at least two NYU students working at Urban right now for credit.

New Guy
 
Hello,

I'm new...a business guy thinking to establish a new school in Corning, NY. We're thinking of an Associates degree, as we have an excellent community college.

When you list these various schools, are you listing those that offer specifically glass oriented degrees?

Thx.

Pete VanderLaan 10-27-2005 04:28 PM

This list is a mix William. I can see a lot of junior college programs on the list. If you go to degree programs for BA or MFA it will get considerably smaller.

William M. Boland 10-27-2005 04:35 PM

List
 
Thanks Pete.

After I posted, I found a great list linked to here. Your help is appreciated.

Jon Clark has retired (2009) from Tyler School of Art/Temple University. If someone were to consider applying to the glass program (BFA or MFA) at this school, they should research the background of the new head of the glass department. I don't see how anyone could invest money and time at this school until the Dept. Head is changed to one that has a stronger connection to glass. (i.e. glass community, glass education and history of working with the material)

It looks like the dept head has an MFA in glass from Tyler and has been working in glass for twenty years

"He has been working with glass for over twenty years. In 2005 he received a fellowship from the Creative Glass Center of America. He has grants for his artwork from several sources, including the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts in 2009 and the Contemporary Glass of Philadelphia in 2005 and 2002. His work has been exhibited at M.A.D. in New York City, the Renwick Gallery in Washington D.C., SOFA Chicago, SOFA New York, and other venues. He is represented by the Snyderman Gallery in Philadelphia."

Am I reading this wrong?

Alexander Adams 06-27-2010 02:35 PM

Daniel Cutrone is not a tenured professor. He is a "presidential appointment" and has been an adjunct and presidential appointement at Tyler since receiving his MFA from Tyler. He did manage the dept in 2003 while Jon was on sabbatical 2003.

Indeed it is interesting how the university prominently displays Dan's picture and credentials on the website but does not list the tenured Associate Professor's crendentials.

Sharyn O'mara is the tenured Associate Professor and head of the Glass Dept. When you find out what her educational background is, please list it here. It will take the heat off of me.

Andrew Brott 06-27-2010 02:58 PM

Mark we should keep their oil off our boots- we have enough...
Hope all is well!!! Feel free to stop our new digs Uptown- just call 1st.
Best,

*****************
This one is remarkably self inflicted Alex, but I also agree with you. After the retirement of the original old school renaissance core group that had the helm from 1967 until about 1993, it has just gotten weirder and weirder. It's no surprise that people have to buy $30K furnaces. They sure as hell can't learn where their tools came from in the process of getting their MFA's in Glass anymore.

Oh, I forgot. University appointments as dept heads are usually fairly political. I'm betting you didn't know that.

Alexander Adams 06-27-2010 03:47 PM

The new area head IS tenured in glass. The current "presidential appointment" is NOT the area head. The politics behind what has happend are shallow.

Temple didn't want to spend money to do a national search for a new Dept. Head. They blew their money on a new building, a new facility and equipment so they slid in a ringer.

The new dept. head was tenured in the Crafts Dept before Jon retired. She was tenured in the Crafts Dept. because that was the only dept. with a tenure vacancy and the school needed a tenure position for the new position of "Head of Foundations". One lawsuit (tenure committee procedures**), 1 semester off for "research", 2 lateral appointments and presto......someone with a graphic design background is running the show.

** records of the lawsuit are public record and can be obtained at the Montgomery County Court House in Norristown, PA or through the court's website.

Pete VanderLaan 06-27-2010 04:51 PM

Well, I hope your foot is feeling warm and mushy now that you've stuck it in a little further. Try wiggling your toes.
