Steven L. Anderson is an Atlanta-based exhibiting
artist and Co-Director of Day & Night Projects—an artist-run
gallery in Atlanta that he helped initiate in 2016.
Steven is a graduate of the University of Michigan and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States since 1996 and has also been the recipient of many accolades including the Denis Diderot A-i-R Grant at Château d’Orquevaux Artist Residency in Orquevaux, France and an Artist Project Grant from the Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs. His sketchbooks are in the permanent collection of the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library at Emory University. By day, Steven works as Sr. Graphic Designer at the Office of Undergraduate Admission at Emory University.
A few topics Steven discusses:
1. The importance of attending office hours in college. Office hours exist for you to connect with your professors and/or teaching assistants for any reason - whether you're having difficulty understanding class material or you're seeking their advice as a mentor. This is a rather easy way to become comfortable with networking as well.
2. Benefits of getting out of your comfort zone. Steven encourages everyone to study abroad at some point - especially during college or soon after graduation. He shares the impact of his experience living in Prague after graduating from the University of Michigan.
3. He highlights the fact that most people encourage young adults to attend college, but they rarely tell you why you should attend. It's important to be thinking about your purpose for attending college. What is it that you want to get from your college experience?
4. His journey juggling "9 to 5" jobs along with his own independent art ventures for almost two decades.
