The VML Hub initiated a digital repository designed specifically to showcase artwork, curriculum activities, and events by CVPA faculty, alumni, and students. The purpose of the repository is to provide access to these rich media resources for instruction and study while celebrating the accomplishments of CVPA's community of artists and designers.
As part of the CVPA thesis requirement, all CVPA graduate students are required to submit thesis images or multimedia, along with caption information, to the VML Hub for inclusion in the CVPA Student Collection within LUNA. The purpose of the repository is to allow UMassDartmouth students access to these works for instruction and study. In addition, the repository is designed to promote CVPA students and alumni works. Whenever possible, the database includes direct links to artist's websites, galleries, and exhibition events.
Each year the Interior Architecture & Design department recognizes a group of students for their outstanding thesis work. This work is publicly available through VML Hub LUNA repository.
Selected IA + D students please complete the submission form and upload your thesis files listed below.
This portal allows CVPA faculty to submit syllabi, assignments, & student works for the purpose of assessment.
CVPA is a vibrant place with prolific instructional courses, programs, activities, exhibitions, and events. Many of us have images and video that document these events. We are asking CVPA faculty, staff and students to submit visual materials to a centralized archival repository that is searchable, discoverable, and shareable.
Help CVPA to build its image/media database for all to share and use. It is easy to do and will take less than five minutes. Just complete the submission form and upload your images/media. You are done!
(All submissions will be reviewed and exported to the LUNA repository for easy access.)
Whether you are faculty or alumni of Southeastern Massachusetts University, Swain School of Design, Mount Ida or the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, you are a member of a proud and talented worldwide community of artists. To honor and support this common legacy, the College of Visual and Performing Arts developed an online database system that showcases artworks of faculty and alumni.
After we have verified the submission, your artwork will become part of an online image and media repository and open to the public. All artworks will have a copyright notification and, when possible, will be linked directly to the artist's website.
Visual & Media Literacy Hub's digital collections are available to the UMassDartmouth campus community for the sole purpose of instruction, scholarship, and study in accordance with the Visual Resource Association Statement on the Fair Use of Images for Teaching, Research, and Study, and the College Art Association for Best Practice in Fair Use for the Visual Arts.
