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.

Stan Jones Jr.

"I am a fourth-year architecture major, minoring in art. I chose to join Atelier InSite because I have always been intrigued by the recent public art installments in Lee Hall. So I felt like this course would give me a great opportunity to learn about the work that goes into making them possible. While also having hands-on experience and knowledge about the public art that is around Clemson's Campus."

Kendall Massey
