VCS from the street

Week 1 is over at SVA, and students and professors are settling into their routines for the new year. Earlier this week, VCS professor Amy Wilson took a few quick snapshots around the West 21st Street buildings that house our offices, classrooms, and studios. Here are a few that she passed on to me.

Above is a shot of the sidewalk right in front of 133 West 21st Street, location of the VCS offices and classrooms. Sixth Avenue is off in the distance. The building is also the home of several other departments and programs, including Art History, Printmaking, BFA and MFA Computer Art, Academic Affairs, and the Writing Resource Center. It also contains SVA’s Westside Gallery, which will host the VCS senior thesis show this January.

Below is another view of 133 West 21st Street, facing the other way down the sidewalk.

Right across the street at 132 is a DaVinci Artist Supply store. The building also houses SVA’s MFA programs in Art Criticism and Writing program, Art Education, and Interaction Design, plus the MPS programs in Digital Photography and Art Therapy. Out of view to the right is 136 West 21st Street, site of the VCS senior studios. The MFA Design Criticism and MFA Illustration as Visual Essay programs are also located there.

The front hall of 1133 West 21st Street usually has a lot of student work on display, and there is artwork hung throughout the rest of the building as well. This shot was taken from just inside the building entrance. There are large windows looking out to the street just out of frame to the left.

I’ll be back with another post tomorrow, covering some of the events coming up next week.
