Meet the Team

Atelier InSite is a Creative Inquiry project that implements public artwork on the Clemson University Campus.
It capitalizes on a cross-disciplinary and inclusive approach that is predominantly student driven. Our goal is to create a new paradigm for the administration of public art on university campuses.


“By Students, for Students”

The word Atelier is derived from the French word meaning “workshop” or “studio.” Atelier describes the atmosphere and attitude towards the installation and development of public art on campus.


Meet the Creative Inquiry Students

Our creative inquiry team has engaged students representing all of the 5 colleges on campus: Agriculture, Forestry, and Life Science; Architecture, Arts, and Humanities; Business and Behavioral Science; Engineering and Science; and Health, Education, and Human Development. These departments come together in our team collaboratively working in a predominantly student driven class for the implementation of public art on the campus of Clemson University. Creative Inquiry is an initiative at Clemson University that engages students at the Undergraduate level in applied research.

"My name is Aimee McShane and I am a senior Visual Arts major. I joined this class to further the work of art on campus and to make the campus as a whole happier and brighter for everyone. Clemson's campus is beautiful, and I believe that allowing students to alter and change the beauty of it is a wonderful thing. I can't wait to see what this class unfolds, and how we are able to change the campus."

Trey Daniel

"I am a senior Architecture major from Rock Hill, South Carolina. I have always enjoyed viewing public art in all of the places I have visited. After traveling to many places with public art, I would love to see more public art on Clemson’s campus. I am excited to get involved with Clemson Atelier and spread more art throughout campus."

Atelier InSite will give me the opportunity to experience my passion for art in a real life setting while also leaving my mark on Clemson University."

Nate Newsome

Human Centered Computing, PhD Student

"I am a recent BFA Graduate from Clemson. During my time as a Visual Arts student I focused in Sculpture, and my work was centered around interactions between people and technology. As a result of my work, I became more and more interested in interactive technologies, and found a new home at the Human Centered Computing PhD program in Clemson. Atelier InSite was started during my time in the Art Department and grabbed my attention during my senior year. It is an amazing opportunity to be part of this program, and I can't wait to see the difference we can make in the perception of public art on Clemson's campus."
