What does drawing, as a critical concept mean to most artists and studio practices in the 21st century?
How do we teach drawing?

Drawn Out, Drawn Over: Mapping the Territory of Experience aims to field a visual conversation about contemporary drawing approaches by featuring selected artists living throughout the United States, most of whom have had devoted careers as academics. Their institutions range from small liberal arts colleges, community colleges, and some of the largest research institutions in the country. The artists have been selected from the specific locations where I have lived over the past 15 years: Pittsburgh, PA, Columbus, OH, and Washington, DC. Artists range from emerging artists in the beginning of their academic careers, to internationally renowned artists, and academics in their given fields of expertise.
