All 2nd Year students are required to create a body of research work and specific artworks that will be transformed and printed as a set of postcards that will exist virtually and in physical form. This project provides the opportunity for painting students to actively engage and respond to the Hunt Museum’s important collection, which includes over 2,000 works of art, including Picasso, Giacometti, Gauguin, and Renoir as well as vitrines full of curious artifacts.
Each Year a diverse range of ideas and concepts emerge from this collaborative process, not only regarding the actual objects and paintings on view but also the display methods used by the Hunt Museum.
