    Dr. Larry Thompson Featured on Cover of October SRQ Magazine!
    Oct. 21, 2010 - Ringling College of Art and Design President Larry Thompson is featured in a 6-page article in the October edition of SRQ magazine complete with accompanying cover. Dr. Thompson's cover image is made up of hundreds of tiny thumbnails of Ringling College student artwork! 

    SRQ Editor Lisl Liang introduces the article with her perspective on Dr. Thompson: 

    "If you’re engaged in a conversation about cultural development and someone mentions the name “Larry,” there is no need to clarify—everyone will know that you are talking about Larry Thompson, president of the Ringling College of Art and Design, local “patron saint” of the arts and the harbinger of the cultural coast of our future. We spend time with him this month exploring the origins of his zeal for the development of our cultural persona. Far from the days when his singular mission was specifically to eradicate the stereotype of the starving artist, Thompson’s bailiwick has evolved well beyond the boundaries of his own academic institution."
