Noah Scalin, artist and co-founder of Another Limited Rebellion, will be the first ever artist-in-residence at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Business during the upcoming 2016–2017 academic year.
In this role, Scalin will help the school institute its new strategic plan, which aims to drive the future of business through the power of creativity. Through the process, he will connect with students, faculty, and administration in creative-thinking seminars, lectures, 30-day Creative Sprint challenges, and the creation of art onsite.
Ed Grier, dean of the VCU School of Business, believes that "having an artist-in-residence is unique for a business school and will distinguish VCU as a leader in combining business and creativity.”
With the belief that creatvity is a practice, Another Limited Rebellion (ALR) helps businesses and individuals develop that practice to grow and succeed. Scalin founded ALR in 2001 with the idea that he could make a living doing what he enjoyed and effect positive change in the world.
Scalin has authored five books on design and creativity and traveled the world bringing his message of creative potential and design activism to everyone from incarcerated teenagers to Fortune 500 executives. A graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of The Arts, he started his career as the Art Director for Troma Entertainment and Avirex Clothing. Scalin's artwork is collected internationally and has been exhibited in numerous museums and galleries, including the Mütter Museum in Philadelphia, the International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago, and Krause Gallery in NYC.
