Drawing Club is a semi-regular event organized with the intention of producing multi-authored two-dimensional drawing objects. Since its inception at the beginning of 2006, Drawing Club has occurred in a variety of configurations and locales. Though the drawing sessions have always been focused on the production of shared drawings in all their formal glory, a parallax view reveals that Drawing Club has produced "material" rather than finished drawings -- a particular, collectively-enacted, unique, tactile/haptic material infused with the exact texture and marks of the social body that produced them.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
