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.

Professor Errol Barron, FAIA opens new exhibit, Water Land

October 30, 2017

Tulane University School of Architecture Professor Errol Barron’s latest exhibition, Water Land, examines the impact of climate change on coastlines. The collection of paintings opens Oct. 31 at Boyd Satellite Gallery in New Orleans.

The pieces were completed over two years of Barron’s travels on the eastern and southern coasts, including time spent as artist-in-residence at the Isles of Shoals Marine Laboratory in Appledore Island, Maine. The watercolor paintings incorporate other mediums such as graphite, carbon, ink and wax color.

“Now that the effects of global warming are so well known, what was once revered as a favored place to live is seen as an unpredictable domain and the effect of looking across open water can be calming or threatening,” said Barron. “These paintings suggest a nostalgic look at, or warning of, a vanishing condition.”

Water Land is open from Oct. 31-Nov. 28, with receptions on Nov. 4 from 6-9 p.m. and Nov. 17 from 4-7 p.m.
