The Expanded Arts program continues to achieve a high standard of excellence through our many community-based projects. Students not only exhibit at ASU but also take their exhibitions throughout the valley for community members to experience. The Expanded Arts program is always expounding upon ways to further develop community programs, including internships at prestigious local art museums and connecting students to local startup companies and nonprofit organizations
Additional resources and opportunities
A 3D scanning and print lab at the Grant Street Studios in downtown Phoenix features cutting edge technology for 3D scanning, animation and prototyping. School of Art graduate students staff the new facility and have the opportunity to collaborate with interdisciplinary partners within the University as well as with local and national industries and the Phoenix community at large.
On campus, the ASU Art Museum's nationally recognized collection and contemporary programming, along with events held on campus (e.g., TeleSculpture, VideoNite, Live Art Platform and the Museum of Walking) are important resources. In the community, Expanded Arts hosts the Documentary Video Art Festival each semester at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. Farther afield, many ASU students and faculty participate in SIGGRAPH, the world's largest conference dedicated to computer graphics and interactive techniques. Online there are two ongoing video archives on Vimeo: ASU Experimental Video Art and ASU Documentary Video Art.
