In 2009, Temple University's Tyler School of Art moved from its campus in Elkins Park, PA, to deep in the heart of Temple's Northern Philadelphia Campus. With this move the school was transformed from a collection of departmental buildings in the solitude of a leafy estate, into a single state of the art building surrounded by the activity of urban life.
Now that we are all under one roof together, we want to combine our creative efforts to present our community to the greater community. Our collaborative graduate catalog will marry the creative output from Tyler's studio MFA's with interviews, writings, and investigations of our graduate and doctoral Art Historians. It is our hope that through this publication we will engage a wide range of readers interested in art and scholarly inquiry.
We are young people at an old school in a very new situation, exploring avenues that extend contemporary voices beyond our building's walls. We want you to be part of our efforts!
Creating a publication is a pretty extensive financial undertaking, and we are asking for only a portion of what it costs in total to create, print, and distribute this catalog. Further funding will allow us to not only print more copies, but broaden the reach of the project. We can get the book in more places, and increase the quality of the books that are printed. Our $2500 goal will ensure that our project can be realized, but more funding will allow for not only a superior end product, but will help to get these books further into the community.
Yes! However, the price of the books and the number we are capable of producing will be heavily dependent on the amount of funds the Kickstarter can raise. The more we raise, the cheaper each book can be, and then a larger number will be available.
