Artist Talk- Peter Tigler
The Department of Art & Art History artist's talk by participatory muralist Peter Tigler.
Peter Tigler, a mural artist based in Santa Monica, CA, creates large-scale public works aimed at engaging audiences from all walks of life in making/ performing art. He designed a mural for Providence College's Sport-Art initiative in 2012 that coordinated the efforts of PC students, artists, athletes, alumni, and other community participants in a collaborative painting process connecting the themes of art, sport, gender, and identity. Returning this fall for St. Dominic's weekend and the launch of PC's Next Century Campaign, Tigler will lead a new mural project highlighting the College's liberal arts mission, community, education, and spirituality.

The Art Department in conjunction with the History Department at Providence College offered an amazing opportunity to study in Greece. The three credit course, The Rise of Greek Civilization was a survey of Greek history taught through the unique combination of archaeology, architecture, history and religion. Art History professor and archaeology specialist, Dr. Thomas Strasser took students to specific, historical archaeological sites in order to learn about Greek culture. Dr. Fred Drogula, professor of Ancient History lectured students at these various sites to further understand Greece's rich history. The course was offered as a Maymester Program and began with a week of rigorous classes on campus at Providence College from May 19th through the 23rd, 2014. The course was then followed by a twelve day trip to Greece where students were able to work and study on site with the professors.
