Dear Students,

The Department of Art is happy to announce the following changes to the Public Art & Architectural Art<http://art.fsu.edu/programs/specialized-studies/public-art-and-architectural-art/> Specialized Studies Program.

What this means for you:

•      Take a class and try out the program before committing to the entire sequence

•      You can enter the program in any semester

•      Will count as a focus area

Here are the details:

Public Art & Architectural Art<http://art.fsu.edu/programs/specialized-studies/public-art-and-architectural-art/>

FSU’s Public Art & Architectural Art Specialized Studies Program is for undergraduate art majors and is made up of a related set of courses intended to supplement a student’s program of studies.  The 15 – 18 hours of coursework are intended to provide a greater degree of specialization in this area. If you are an FSU Art major and you have or will have completed your Foundations requirements, you can register for the Public Art & Architectural Art courses. Taking Sculpture I (ART 2701C) is strongly encouraged as well.

The following Public Art courses are open to ALL art students and will count as a focus area (no application needed):
ART3845, Entering the Public Sphere: How to Apply for Public Art Commissions (fall semester)
ART4928C, Public Art Studio – Design/Build: a hands-on investigation of art in the public sphere (fall semester)
ART4929C, Public Art Studio - Design Strategies: professional proposal development and project execution (spring semester)
ARH3405 Contemporary Art for Public Spaces (online course), (fall and spring semester) counts as Art History credit for Art majors.
