Student Works

In 2006 two IA majors (Forrest Lewinger and Stefan Ransom) joined with two Visual Arts majors (Zoe Friedman and Ainslee McAndrew) to form a quartet known as The Dainty Art Collective, and choreographed a multi-media performance, employing costume design, original sound, and experimental video. The performance was staged at a leading gallery venue in St Petersburg, The Studio@620. Creative Loafing critic Meg Voeller dubbed it Tampa Bay's "Performance of the Year", and listed it as among the "ten top reasons to feel good about the arts in the Tampa Bay area."

More recently, Jake Woerner developed a website that features interactive digital sound recordings

For her senior project, Emily Mason was producer, art director and editor of the indie film Baine.
