The Department Jewelry + Metalsmithing in the Division of Fine Arts, Rhode Island School of Design invites applications for a full-time faculty appointment, at the rank of Assistant/Associate Professor to begin fall 2015.
The Jewelry + Metalsmithing program, established in 1879, instructs students in the training and practice of traditional techniques as well as the conceptual and methodological development of contemporary modes of practice. The department has approximately 40 undergraduate and 12 graduate students, offering a two-year MFA degree, a four-year BFA degree, and a one-year post baccalaureate. The curriculum hones artistic identity through visual, written and material research built upon a foundation of strong technical skills, and emphasizes a thorough understanding and integration of process/technique, material exploration, and conceptual development. Unique to the program, a diverse and rotating group of 15 faculty supports the development of students as artists and designers who energize the field through personal vision and understanding of the larger artistic, cultural and social contexts of the discipline.
Through a rigorous program of study, students learn to think critically, master the varied technical processes inherent to creating work, and develop a true understanding of both traditional goldsmithing and contemporary jewelry. Students are guided by a distinctive faculty with a wide spectrum of skills, philosophies and professional experiences, as well as by an inspiring international roster of visiting artists. Our goal is that students develop the confidence, resourcefulness and commitment necessary to establish a self-reflective practice, creating work that is personally expressive and responsive to the changing values of our world. As a professional jewelry and metalsmithing department within an art and design school, our focus is on the growth of the student as a creative individual and as an innovator in our field.
Close connections to the professional world are maintained through internships, seminars, speakers and interactions with visiting artists and critics. Collaborative projects with artists, faculty and students from other RISD departments, the RISD museum, community, and the jewelry industry enrich students' educational experience. Candidate must demonstrate the capacity and interest to work across these areas in partnership with our diverse departmental faculty.
