All classes are suspended for the week of March 16. Starting the week of March 23, all classes will resume entirely online. Tulane School of Architecture (TuSA) remains open with most faculty and staff working remotely. Students can be granted access to work in the building only with prior approval from the school. At this time, we are not hosting admissions tours.

Please continue to check your Tulane email, Canvas, the TuSA COVID-19 FAQ, and the Tulane Emergency Management page for updates.

Tulane is working with students who have difficult personal circumstances that would make leaving campus a challenge or will face complications in online learning once they return home. In response, we have set up the Tulane Student Emergency Aid and Assistance Fund to address current student needs.


2016 Silver Circle Sculpture | Marianne Desmarais

September 12, 2016

The Contemporary Arts Center is pleased to present the 2016–17 Silver Circle Sculpture by Marianne Desmarais, Glyphic Figure. Created exclusively for upper-level CAC Members, this limited sculptural edition of 65 was digitally fabricated with water jet and laser etching techniques. In this piece, the act of scratching the surface propels the work through shifting optic volumes to suggest a symbolic object occupying 2D and 3D space simultaneously.

Marianne Desmarais joins previous Silver Circle sculpture artists Brian St. Cyr; Dawn DeDeaux; Jeff Becker; Jennifer Odem; John T. Scott (posthumous); Generic Art Solutions (G.A.S.); John Barnes, Jr.; Srdjan Loncar; Elizabeth Shannon; Stephen Paul Day; MaPô Kinnord-Payton; Mary Jane Parker; Martin Payton; Jeffrey Cook; Allison Stewart; Clifton Webb; Mitchell Gaudet; George Dunbar; Gene Koss; Winifred Ross; Christopher Maier; Arthur Silverman; Bernard Mattox; John T. Scott; Mignon Faget; and Lin Emery.
