Research Guides

Posted by courtneycox2009 on March 2, 2010

The library has now put together a simple and very useful research guide for all majors here at Ringling. Research Guides are here to help everyone with researching topics about their major. There are even short videos, pictures, books and magazines that relates to the specific major and can  be useful for enhancing one’s work.

How to use Research Guides:

  • Click on the individual Research Guide you’d like to see
  • Begin researching by clicking on the different tabs
  • Each tab will have different  information about the intended major which are all highly informative.

Though Research Guides are still in the process of being perfected, students can at least familiarize themselves with the format of this new strategy.

New Book: Land Art

Posted by brimeyer on December 15, 2008

Land Art

Land Art

Land Art

by Michael Lailach

What greater canvas could an artist ask for than the surface of the Earth?  For these artists, that’s all they require.  In his book, Land Art, Michael Lailach explores the development of earthworks as an art form, and the influential artists of the movement.  With a brief, informative introduction, he explains a little bit of the history of the art form, and what is involved in creating an earthwork structure.

Lailach then jumps straight into the major players and their creations.  The rest of the book is dedicated to explaining some of the well-known earthworks … and some of those who are more obscure.  In an easy-to-follow format he gives the artists’ names, the location of the piece, the dates of creation, photos, and a one or two page write up about the work.  With each new piece he provides a background of the artist, and their thought process as they developed the earthwork.

If you’re curious about the significance and symbolism of some of these amazing creations, and the artistic minds behind them, then Land Art is certainly the book for you.
