A longtime art professor is moving into a new role as interim associate dean for Mississippi State University’s College of Architecture, Art and Design.

Jeffrey Haupt, who previously served as the painting concentration coordinator in the Department of Art, will take on the role of the associate dean. This addition to the college administration is allowing Associate Dean Greg Hall to concentrate his work as interim director of the college’s Building Construction Science program. 

Haupt

“We are fortunate in the College of Architecture, Art and Design to have the type of faculty and administrators that anticipate change and take advantage of opportunity,” said CAAD Dean Jim West. “We had a need to fill the director’s position in the Building Construction Science program, and our current Associate Dean Gregory Hall – who has a construction background – was willing to step into the role. 

“Jeffrey Haupt, one of our senior professors, was also equally willing and wonderfully equipped to assume the associate dean’s responsibilities. Both of these positions will benefit from fresh perspectives and energy,” West added.

Haupt received his Master of Fine Arts from Indiana University and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from the Cleveland Institute of Art. He began his teaching career in 1997

Hall

at Indiana University and then taught at the John Waldron Arts Center before joining the Mississippi State art department faculty in 1999 ­as an assistant professor. He was promoted to full professor in 2010.

“I am excited, humbled and grateful to serve CAAD and Mississippi State University in this role,” Haupt said. “For me, it becomes another channel for the pedagogical experience.”

‘Narratives of the Land’ exhibit opens at MSU’s Cullis Wade art gallery

August 28th, 2017 Comments Off on ‘Narratives of the Land’ exhibit opens at MSU’s Cullis Wade art gallery

By Sasha Steinberg | Mississippi State University

One of twelve art exhibitions celebrating the Magnolia State’s bicentennial will be on display Sept. 1-29 at Mississippi State’s Cullis Wade Depot Art Gallery.

Located on the second floor of the university’s Welcome Center, “Narratives of the Land” features quintessential scenes of Mississippi landscapes created by artists Walter Inglis Anderson (1903-65), Ke Francis (1945-), William “Bill” Dunlap (1944-) and Eudora Welty (1909-2001).

Admission is free to all. Exhibit hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday, as well as two hours prior to kickoff for Saturday home football games. 

On Thursday [Sept. 7], a 5 p.m. opening reception will be held in the Cullis Wade gallery. All are welcome to enjoy complimentary refreshments and view works on display.

“Narratives of the Land” is part of the Mississippi Museum of Art’s “Art Across Mississippi: Twelves Exhibitions, Twelve Communities,” a statewide series of exhibitions featuring works by regionally acclaimed artists, past and present.

“The museum’s collection of art is made more valuable every time Mississippians have encounters with it,” said Betsy Bradley, MMA director. “We are excited to share how, during the past 200 years, artists have helped us see our hometowns and each other with new eyes and increased sensitivity to the beauty around us.”

The “Art Across Mississippi” exhibition series serves as a precursor to “Picturing Mississippi, 1817-2017: Land of Plenty, Pain and Promise,” a landmark exhibition of more than 175 works of art interpreting the state’s rich artistic legacy over two centuries. Part of the MMA’s Annie Laurie Swaim Hearin Memorial Exhibition Series, the exhibition will be on display this Dec. 9-July 8, 2018, at the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson.

The MSU exhibition and related events are organized by the university’s Department of Art, home to the Magnolia State’s largest undergraduate studio art program.

Gootee’s photograph selected for Landscape, Grand and Personal exhibition

Mississippi State University Department of Art Professor Marita Gootee’s photograph, “The Fold,” was selected by juror Eliot Dudik for the Landscape, Grand and Personal exhibition at the SE Center for Photography. The exhibition will run during September at the center in Greenville, S.C. 

Dudik is a photographic artist, educator and bookmaker exploring the connection between culture, history and politics. His first monograph, ROAD ENDS IN WATER, was published in 2010. In 2012, he was named one of PDN’s 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch, and one of The Oxford American magazine’s 100 New Superstars of Southern Art.

“The Fold” is a lumen print of an 8×10 negative contact. The Jill Enfield Guide to Photographic Alternative Processes explains a Lumen as “…prints are made by taking sheets of unexposed black-and-white photo paper and placing objects or negatives on top as if you were going to make a photogram, but instead of using an enlarger you take the paper out into the sun. The results will vary due to exposure times, density of photogram or negative, quality of light and, most importantly, the type of paper.”

Mississippi State’s College of Architecture, Art and Design recently hosted its second annual design camp for students from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Mississippi.

Held June 26–30, the five-day summer experience in Jackson had a goal of helping students in the Greater Jackson community develop their interests in architecture, art, community development, design, engineering, planning, social justice and related professional fields.

Students gained knowledge of design tools and media through individual and group workshops focused on design, sketching, printmaking, graphic design, model building, sculpture and construction, among other skills. Collaboration, leadership and communication skills were developed, which will help students increase their self-confidence in these areas, leaders said.

This year’s camp was co-directed by MSU School of Architecture Jackson Center Director Jassen Callender and Department of Art Assistant Professor Suzanne Powney.

“It was a wonderful experience to show design-centered entrepreneurship in Jackson to the students,” said Powney. “The range of presenters and activities really emphasized the many paths they could take in the future.” 

The faculty were joined by four student counselors from the College of Architecture, Art and Design – Kapish Cheema (May 2017 graduate, architecture), De’Andre Gaskin (senior, architecture), Carly Melton (senior, art), Garrett Yelverton (May 2017 graduate, architecture).

The camp experience included a variety of visits throughout downtown Jackson, including a tour of the New Capitol building and the Mississippi Museum of Art. The students also visited studios in downtown Jackson including NunoErin Interactive Furniture, Mississippi Light Collaborative with Jess Dalton, and architect and MSU alumnus Steve Davis’s firm – Canizaro Cawthon Davis.

The students visited Midtown to explore video work at Red Square Productions with Roderick Red, entrepreneurship at Offbeat with Phillip Rollins, art and design at Pearl River Glass Studio with Andrew Young, and furniture design at Reclaimed Miles with Chad Schwarzauer.

Speakers included interior designer and MSU alumnus Cristen Richard, animation and illustrator Assistant Professor Ginnie Hsu from the MSU Department of Art, and coordinator of recruitment activities Tabora Cook from the MSU Office of Admissions and Scholarships.

CAAD Associate Dean and Professor Greg Hall said the camp was designed to help expose students to the wide variety and scope of educational and career opportunities in design fields ranging from architecture to graphic design and interior design to fashion, as well as related fields such as engineering and construction.

“One of our primary goals is to help students form educational and professional goals that they can continue to develop during their high school education, regardless of their eventual career choice,” Hall said.

In addition to being funded in part by a $5,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Jackson and $750 from the ChemFirst/First Mississippi Corporation Charitable Endowment Fund of the Community Foundation of Greater Jackson, the camp is supported by MSU’s College of Architecture, Art and Design; its School of Architecture and Department of Art; the MSU Holmes Cultural Diversity Center and Office of the Registrar.

“I think one of the most rewarding things about this program is seeing the students develop an interest in design as it applies to everyday life,” said Jane Alexander, president and CEO of the Community Foundation of Greater Jackson. “Not all of them will pursue a career in this path, but they are motivated by the projects they do and the things they see and experience during the week.”

She added, “Once you’ve been exposed to art and architecture, you learn it’s accessible. Knowledge is power, and now these kids have the power of ‘seeing’.”
