The School of Art multi-media presentation and electronic media classrooms provide optimal spaces to view high-definition video in the widest range of formats. Every effort is made to maintain the most up-to-date equipment in these clean spaces.
The CFA Multimedia Studio is a joint venture between Computing Services and the College of Fine Arts. It includes regularly updated and upgraded computers and other equipment for such tasks as sound and video editing or 3D Animation.
Located in the north wing on the 3rd floor of CFA, the Multimedia Studio serves an essential role in the School of Art. Among the numerous public computer labs across the University, the Multimedia Studio provides the most comprehensive range of hardware and software for producing electronic and time-based artwork. The CFA Multimedia Studio is managed jointly by Computing Services and the College of Fine Arts Dean’s Office.
Directed by School of Art Associate Professor Golan Levin, The Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry is a flexible laboratory for new modes of arts research, production and presentation. Founded in 1989 within the College of Fine Arts at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), the STUDIO serves as a locus for hybrid enterprises on the CMU campus, the Pittsburgh region, and internationally. Our current emphasis on new-media arts builds on more than two decades of experience hosting interdisciplinary artists in an environment enriched by world-class science and engineering departments. Through our residencies and outreach programs, the STUDIO provides opportunities for learning, dialogue and research that lead to innovative breakthroughs, new policies, and the redefinition of the role of artists in a quickly changing world.
The School of Art maintains a collection of electronic media equipment (including video cameras, tripods, lighting kits, and video projectors) that is available exclusively to Art faculty, staff, undergrad and graduate students.
Access to higher-end items may be limited to students who have received training in EMS courses or who have otherwise demonstrated the proficiency and responsibility required to properly utilize advanced-level equipment.
