Our Graduates in Art
Paloma Ferreyros (above), '08, is completing her master’s degree in art and art education at Teachers College of Columbia University in New York City. As a visual arts educator, she has worked with a variety age groups and organizations - including schools, museums, clinics and public art programs. Currently, she is student teaching AP Art History and Advanced Digital Photography at the specialized art high school Fiorello H. LaGuardia Arts. Paloma credits her experience at New College with guiding her to think critically about the choices involved in her art making practice. As a New College student, she was awarded several student research grants for her independent study projects and her thesis work. The funding, provided by the New College Alumnae/i Association and The Council of Academic Affairs, enabled her to take summer courses at The School of The Art Institute of Chicago and to participate in large-scale mural projects in Sarasota. Two of her murals are currently on display at the New College Child Center.
Filmmaker Nirvan Mullick directed "Caine's Arcade," a short film about a boy, his imagination and a social movement to bring him customers. After going viral, "Caine's Arcade" has been featured on numerous national media outlets and has inspired scholarships in Caine's name and the imaginations of children worldwide. Mullick also studied Philosophy and Fine Arts while at New College.
New College is proud of the many Art and non-Art graduates who have contributed to the field. Here's a sampling of some of our graduates:
• Brian Lukacher received his master's degree from Williams College and a PhD in art from the University of Delaware. He is currently a member of the art faculty at Vassar College.
