Bluecanvas would like to thank everyone who attended and participated in our Issue 9 Launch Event. Due to the continuing support of our fans, artists, sponsors and community, we were able to successfully launch the ninth issue of Bluecanvas Magazine. In addition to our local, live and digital artists, some out of state and international exhibiting artists were able to attend the event. For the Issue 9 launch event, Scion provided the David Choe, Giant Robot and Mr. Cartoon Art Cars, and KCRW Dee Jay Anthony Valadez entertained the crowd with a set on the turntables. Bluecanvas sincerely appreciates everyone who was able to attend the event. Please enjoy the video and photos and we can't wait to see you at the October launch of Issue 10!
Dedicated to developing independent emerging artists, Scion encourages fresh, inventive talent to push creative boundaries in art, music and design and lends support through shows, tours, gallery events... and kindred partners like Bluecanvas.
SVA's student body is comprised of more than 4,200 creative talents from around the country and the globe: 3,650 undergraduates pursuing a BFA in one of eight departments ranging from advertising to interior design, and 564 graduate students enrolled in 16 distinctive programs. In addition, the Division of Continuing Education enrolls more than 2,327 students in day, evening, and weekend classes. Students who choose SVA are often attracted by the breadth and professional standing of its faculty, the passion of its student body, the rigors of its curriculum, and the industry standards within its studio. They study in an environment that nurtures creativity, inventiveness and experimentation, enabling them to develop a strong sense of identity and a clear direction of purpose.
SVA counts some of the world's greatest artists among its alumni. Many thousands of them constitute the core of New York City's creative community; thousands of others can be found throughout the United States and in over thirty countries around the world. Some notable alumni include fine artists Inka Essenhigh, Rodney Alan Greenblat, Keith Haring, Suzanne McClelland, Elizabeth Peyton, Alexis Rockman, Kenny Scharf, Gary Simmons and Sarah Sze; photographers Guy Aroch, Renée Cox, Justine Kurland and Lorna Simpson. Others include Paul Davis (principal Paul Davis Studio), Sal DeVito (creative director, DeVito/Verdi), and Patrick McDonnell (creator, Mutts comic strip).
