UC Irvine art department: Recontextualizing instruction during changing times

“Art is essential to the well-being of individuals and society,” explains Stephen Barker, Ph.D., dean of the UC Irvine Claire Trevor School of the Arts (CTSA). … Observing the UC Irvine art school faculty and students manifesting their artistry in innovative ways is to see the unfolding of new cultural models to last into the future. As art school dean Barker says, “We intend to come out on the other side of this pandemic having learned new ways to create art and to be impactful and fully relevant.”
