Students learn best when placed in challenging, yet vested situations. These experiences demand more than mere exposure to subject matter, they should act as catalysts and spark something within the individual.  

Will Taylor is an Associate Professor of Drawing and the Director of the Visual Arts Program. He is a recipient of the UNCSA Excellence in Teaching Award and the Thomas S. Kenan Institute for the Arts' BREATHE Project Development Grant. His scholarly work has included travel to Prague and London for artistic dialogues with Jan Svankmajer and the Brothers Quay. He has presented individual and collaborative works in such exhibitions as “Drawing No Conclusions: A Survey of Contemporary Drawing” (Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts-Grand Rapids, MI), the Trisha Brown Dance Company Benefit (Pace Wildenstein Gallery-New York, NY) and “Old Ghosts and Empty Archetypes" (Spectre Arts-Durham, NC). In addition, Taylor has paneled discussions for the Cultural Studies Association, the College Art Association, and the American Society of Media Photographers.
