As long as that petition goes into a hard copy and is in the hands of those people I think it's a good idea. Too often those petitions sit idly online or tacked to some wall never getting signed.

Best wishes saving that department. The printmaking studio has pretty much been dead in the water since they forced Duncan out of there and I was pretty down about that. I'm a little surprised still that they're shutting down jewlery with the amount of people who take the class and that they had someone graduate recently with jewlery. No one who graduates does ceramics seriously and they're in no danger of getting shut down.

I'll be glad to add my name to your petition though. I assume you're around sculpture so I hope I see it around there.

PS. One more place to let people know: http://groups.myspace.com/fiuartists

oh yes, i def. plan on making the online petition into a hard copy, otherwise there wouldn't be much of a point to it, would there?! ~:-] it truly does suck (for lack of better words) about the demise of the art department, goodbye to glass + printmaking + maybe even jewelry soon enough, and there goes diversity in the arts!

i am always around the ceramics/metalwork/sculpture building on Tues/Thurs from about 10am-4:30pm, so if you're around - ask around for me, EJ, and i'm sure someone will know where i am!

and thanx for the myspace link, i'd love to post a link to the petition in that community, but i don't have a MySpace account! maybe i can get someone else to do it for me? hhmmmm?!......

best wishes,

Oh, you're a friend of Peter's, right? I know who you are.
I'm the guy that never works on his robots in ceramics.
