SVA New Year’s Resolutions
January 5, 2018

2018 may have already kicked off with a "bomb cyclone" and blizzard-level conditions, but that won’t stop SVA department chairs from starting the new year with high hopes and strong intentions. Here is a selection of resolutions for the coming year from across the College.
"I'm resolved to use my creative energy to make 2018 the year that women act together to bring justice and sanity back to America."
"In 2018, I look forward to encouraging students to create the work that the world would never see without them. I resolve to make sure that isn't just visual art, but also the work that makes them good citizens and neighbors."
- Jimmy Calhoun, acting chair, BFA Computer Art, Computer Animation and Visual Effects
“One of my resolutions is to learn Danish well enough to carry on a 15-minute conversation. (My partner is Danish, and I'm a beginner Danish student).”
"I resolve to squander any resolution that presents itself as requiring discipline in service of buttressing yet another bulwark against the inevitable dissolution of the self. Better, to let go of things—except whims, friends, and passions—rather than shore-up, one more time this year for sure, that which can stand always and only tentatively, hopelessly, against the demon gravity."
"I am hoping that in 2018, democracy and world peace will become our main concerns."
"I resolve to get more sleep!"
