Marcy Thomas

A transfer student, Marcy found the perfect fit for her interests in her hometown of Naperville. “I learned there was this beautiful place practically in my backyard. The timing was just right, too. North Central’s fine arts venues were newly opened and the arts programs were booming.”

Marcy found the advanced courses in art history enriching. “You explore art works within their social, political, philosophical and historical contexts, which makes it so much more interesting and academically challenging. Studying other artists allows you to develop your own concepts and helps you write your own artist’s statement.”

Her experiences at North Central included travel to Rome for a D-Term course and presentations of her sculptural portfolio at both national and College conferences. “Research of art history and theory plays a huge role in my body of work. Without this step my portfolio would have never developed conceptually.” Marcy plans to attend graduate school.
