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.

Bio:

Born and raised in Michigan, Jill Stoll attended two of the state’s most celebrated cultural institutions, graduating from Interlochen Arts Academy and earning a MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Since moving to New Orleans in 2009, her affiliation with Tulane School of Architecture has included teaching first-year drawing and electives in mixed media collage. As editor, she oversaw the relaunch of the reVIEW, a time-honored publication that highlights the best of student work. From 2012-2015, Stoll served as Associate Dean of Students and Director of Career Explorations in Architecture.

In October 2016, the AIA New Orleans was the site of a solo exhibition of her work. “WITHDRAWN” featured a 4’ x 40’ collage mural comprised of paper ephemera. Using intricately cut pages from “withdrawn” library books, Stoll took that which was fragmented in order to rebuild it. Having passed through many hands for decades, these decommissioned books would be lost to the digital age had the artist not commemorated them through art and collage.

By September 2017, Stoll has snail-mailed 1,726 original postcard collages through her Random Acts of Mail Art Project (a completely commerce-free endeavor that aligns with the concept of Random Acts of Kindness) and by offering Mail Art Subscriptions, a program that sends subscribers a small piece of handmade art in the mail each month.
