There's a richness to the professor/student relationship that transcends the simple transmission of information. Sometimes, as a teacher, you have to flex your mental or artistic muscles a bit to get your point across. Until mid-December, Hartford Art School faculty members put up or shut up; that's their art (including Steven DiGiovanni's Untitled (Oil Refinery), pictured above) hanging on the walls of the University of Hartford's Joseloff Gallery. In all, more than 40 faculty members participated in this show, leaving their crammed offices in the ceramics, drawing, media arts, illustration, sculpture, painting, photography, printmaking, visual communication design, and foundation studies departments with works in hand. Pretty impressive.
