Administrative Appointments and Accomplishments
2016- Associate Executive Dean for Space and Infrastructure, College of Arts and Sciences
The Ohio State University. Columbus, OH
Provide guidance to the executive dean and the divisional deans regarding the effective and efficient use of space across the college for research and teaching. Works with department chairs, center directors and ASC offices to assess space needs, including developing a broader cooperation between chairs and the college on space utilization.
Oversee strategic planning and logistics for three major projects: the renovations of Oxley/Pomerene (Data Analytics); the development of the Materials Corridor (in collaboration with Engineering); and the new Arts District. (Music, Theatre, Dance, Art, History of Art, Art Education and Public Policy)
Negotiate shared space between units; assist with capital planning; represent the college to and coordinate with the office of Facilities Operation and Development and of Physical Planning and Real Estate; provide guidance to college leadership regarding infrastructure issues; and work closely with the college staff who assist with space management and provide oversight to the OSHA coordinators.
2005- 2012 Chair, Department of Art. The Ohio State University. Columbus, OH
Rankings, Graduate and Undergraduate Programs, and Curriculum:
Increased the national reputation of the graduate program to rankings of 18th overall and 4th among public institutions in US News and World Reports; a move up from #28 ten years prior.
Increased selectivity and diversity of the graduate applicant pool; increased the number of University Graduate Fellowship Awards.
Developed, resourced and implemented a new 3-year MFA curriculum designed to encourage interdisciplinary work and collaborative graduate study.
Oversaw a complete curriculum conversion from quarters to semesters for the undergraduate, graduate and general education courses. Included in this process was creating and vetting new courses, reorganizing course content, developing new curricular maps, resourcing new advising and teaching assignments, mapping class schedules and facilities usage, and integrating programmatic requirements. This was accomplished with minimal impact on student retention, matriculation and department productivity.
Completed an external program review and developed Strategic Goals based on this assessment. Targets have been met including: stabilizing funding sources; revisions to the curriculum and programmatic structures; upgrades to facilities; integration of technology; managing enrollments; reevaluating teaching assignments for faculty, lecturers and graduate teaching associates.
Guided a programmatic self-study and successful reaccreditation review by NASAD.
Expanded the faculty in the areas of photography, art and technology, and created a new position in moving image production to support new interdisciplinary research and learning.
Developed, gained university and state approval, and implemented a comprehensive program fee and course materials fees for the department. This fee structure has provided secure and sustained funding for key operational functions common to the core of studio teaching, such as the project shop and galleries. Funds are also available to maintain safe working environments and the means to provide new materials and methodologies within the disciplines.
Renovation and Building Projects tied to Curriculum:
Advocated for the physical plant needs of the program leading to a $14+ million renovation creating new facilities for the printmaking, photography and digital technology programs, a new sculpture studio addition, complete HVAC replacements, open public critique spaces, new windows, and the creation of specialized classrooms, semi-private and private spaces for the graduate students and faculty research. Throughout the process I developed creative solutions that support our teaching and research missions as well as those of the university master plan.
Contributed expertise and served on the leadership team in the creation of the OSU Urban Arts Space (UAS), a 10,000 square foot arts space located within the historic Lazarus landmark in the downtown core. Served on the planning committees that worked with the architects, university administration, faculty and community leaders to develop the design and mission. Served on the Advisory Board that established programming, staffing, and funding models.
Development and Grants:
Secured funding for the establishment of The Living Culture Initiative, an interdisciplinary and exploratory structure that embraces interdisciplinary practices that are flexible, open, and most importantly, sustainable through emphasizing acting locally and working in collaboration.
Secured research grants and funding to establish a 3-dimensional digital lab that includes CNC Milling, rapid prototyping and laser cutting capabilities; upgraded all computing facilities; embedded new technologies within “traditional studios”; and expanded digital photography and video.
Crafted and presented funding proposals to major donors, alumni, foundations and corporations during the OSU Capital Campaign; involved in setting goals and needs, “friend-raising”, donor visits, and researching and engaging prospective donors. During the early “quiet” stages, doubled funding for scholarships, secured donor support to upgrade several studio facilities, and received special grants and gifts that are funding student exhibitions, catalogues, and professional development.
Secured a grant ($60,000) from The Emily Tremaine Hall Foundation’s Marketplace Empowerment for Artists Program, to develop content and curriculum for professional practice courses for OSU Students. This funding has been directed towards faculty/alumni exhibitions, visiting artists and curators, and the new three-year MFA exhibition catalogue.
With all of these increased funding streams, the department is engaging alumni with students, providing access for our students to work with the following: artists working at the highest levels, experts in small businesses, and regional and national arts agencies. These new resources provide an opportunity for the BFA and MFA students to develop an understanding of basic business practices and tools for beginning their creative careers and becoming independent entrepreneurs.
International Exhibition Advisor and Collaborations:
Formed a unique collaborative research team that engages faculty, staff and students in the Arts, Humanities, and Engineering colleges, in partnership with the Wexner Center for the Arts, one such project reimagined internationally acclaimed artist Chris Burden’s work When Robots Rule: The Two Minute Airplane Factory. Wit the sudden passing of Chris Burden, the project is now transitioning to a sponsored research project, with Burden’s Studio investing funding for space, staffing and student internship opportunities. “When Robots Rule: The Two-Minute Airplane Factory is a factory that robotically assembles small stick-and-tissue rubber-band-powered airplanes. After being assembled and built, the model airplanes, with their rubber bands pre- wound, are launched off the production line every two minutes. ... In a microcosm, this is the dream and the promise of the Industrial Age.” (Burden, 1998)
Served as exhibition advisor in developing the concept of Pull Left, an exhibition of contemporary Chinese Art that debuted at the OSU Urban Arts Space July – October 2014, and is touring the United State with recent showings to Hillstrom Museum in Minnesota and the Trout Gallery in Pennsylvania. Curated by Tang Xi, Su Wenxiang and Chaoboa Xu of Taikang Art Collections in Beijing, China with assistance from Li Chao of the Jingdezghen Institute. The show features the work of 28 young Chinese artists exhibiting together for the first time. A full-color catalogue that includes an introduction I co-authored accompanies the project. Part of my involvement in this project included travel to Beijing to conduct studio visits and selections, developing budgets and logistics, raising the required funds through corporate giving, state and agency grants, and research funds. This project was the first in a series of future curatorial collaborations currently under development.
I serve as a faculty advisor and assisted in coordination of the upcoming exhibition Open This End featuring works from the Blake Byrne Collection and the Skylark Foundation. I have met several times with the donor Blake Byrne, his Executive Director, Barbara Schwan, his family foundation, The Skylark Foundation, and the exhibition curator Joeseph R. Wolin in New York, Los Angeles, Durham, NC and Columbus over the past three years. This exhibition is being featured this fall at the OSU Urban Arts Space and tours to Nasher Museum at Duke University, Wallach Gallery at Columbia University, and Hoffman Gallery at Lewis and Clark College.
1997-2005 Chair, Division of Art. West Virginia University. Morgantown, WV
Rankings, Graduate and Undergraduate Programs, and Curriculum:
Strengthened the curriculum, examined and prioritized experiences to increase programmatic competitiveness and productivity. Developments included new studio concentrations that engaged technologies, creating hybrids between new media and traditional creative processes, and the creation of a photography concentration.
Implemented a 3-year MFA curriculum and restructured resources in support of this change. This and other improvements resulted in that MFA program being ranked 61st by US News and World Report, the highest (and first time) ranking for that institution.
Established unique international exchange programs in China, Mexico and Italy. These international initiatives are based on sustainable models that generated opportunities for institutional partnerships while broadening diversity and professional development, and fostered new lines of inquiry that mutually benefit the academic programs and missions of all the participating institutions. Accomplishing these goals required management of resources and developing new revenue streams across multiple international institutions.
Renovation and Building Projects tied to Curriculum:
Identified donors and secured funding to renovate and name the Paul and Laura Mesaros Galleries which became the forerunner to the new Art Museum at WVU opening Fall 2015.
Development and Grants:
Successful fundraising efforts including encouraging participation from interested donors, engaging students and faculty in donor relations, creating effective case studies, establishing priorities for a capital campaign, identified new donors, and secured asks.
Prepared grants for foundations, corporations and organizations.
Secured over $5.5 million in gifts for the Division of Art during WVU’s Capital Campaign, transforming the mission and scope of that program.
Service on university committees are focused on those in support of academic standards, international programs, electronic library resources, faculty and chair development, research and teaching; all significant aspects of promoting a vital university community.
Chaired the OSU University Campus Arts and Memorials Committee and the Percent for Art Program. In this position I crafted and received state approval for a new “zone plan” for public art on campus. This new approach enables OSU to fully integrate public art commissions and selections within the master plan. Funds can now be “pooled” into larger projects and be integrated with the architectural and landscape master plan. By successfully gaining permission from the Ohio Arts Council and the state, OSU embarked on a more ambitious public art program including commissioned projects by Dan Graham, Bill and Mary Buchen, Jim Isenmann, Ann Hamilton, and others. In the coming year, this committee will direct over $2.5 million toward public art projects on campus within this integrated framework.
Served on the OSU College of Arts and Sciences Strategic Planning subcommittee charged with developing new approaches to development and fundraising.
Served on the Board of the National Council of Arts Administrators, an organization I have been an active member of since 1996. In November of 2012 OSU hosted the NCAA annual conference and I served as Conference Organizer. In that role I was responsible for coordinating programming, events and logistic for over 120 guests that included deans, directors and arts administrators from across the US and Canada.
Served on two College Art Association sub-committees: Review of the CAA Standards for the BA and BFA Degrees in Studio Art and Reviewing the CAA Standards for Retention and Tenure of Visual Arts Faculty. The work of these subcommittees led to revisions to the CAA Policies and Standards for these important issues.
Served as the National Association of School of Art and Design (NASAD) representative for both OSU and WVU and represented these institutions at national meetings. I have also served on working groups that discuss policy and goals relative to accreditation of arts programs.
In 1996, I served as a host of the Southern Graphics Council International Conference at WVU, bringing 800+ artists, critics, educators and students to Morgantown, from Canada, China, England, Brazil, Iceland, and Mexico and throughout the United States, for the largest gathering of printmaking professionals. Following this conference, I served as President of the Southern Graphics International Council for a two-year term that expanded the organizations membership, programming and reach internationally.

Throughout my academic career, I have maintained a consistent program of creative activity at the national and international levels. These creative activities have, while rooted in my training in printmaking, expanded into new areas; exploring collaborations, developing new tools, methods and materials, and engaging new technologies that have changed my creative processes and extended my vocabulary and the definitions of my studio practice.
Last year I mounted a solo exhibition at the ShangDong Contemporary Art Museum in Nanjing, China. This project, in tandem with my role in facilitating Pull Left, a curated travelling exhibition featuring the work of contemporary artists in Beijing, have rekindled my collaborative efforts I established in China over 15 years ago. There are future exhibitions and curatorial projects in the planning stages for 2016 and beyond.
