Michael DeLuca
Associate Director of Recruitment




Michael DeLuca comes to Drexel with almost 20 years of teaching experience. He taught undergraduate fine arts as an Associate Professor of Drawing at Arcadia University. Additionally, at Arcadia he served as the liaison between the art department and enrollment management where he helped coordinate all events pertaining to recruitment for the art department including open house events, National Portfolio Days, high school visits, and portfolio reviews for prospective art & design students.  Michael also served as the advisor for all incoming, non-declared art & design students, and was the point person for the first-year undergraduate art & design experience.  


Michael DeLuca holds a BFA in Painting & Drawing from Arcadia University and an MFA in Painting & Drawing from Indiana University. Michael understands Drawing as a medium unto itself. Working exclusively with pastel on paper, he uses 2-Dimensional graphic shapes as subject matter to explore ideas of gesture, motion, and cause & effect. He is also a collaborative artist that loves working with others, particularly with his ongoing "Shape Exchange" project. With this project, he uses shapes from other contemporary artists as inspiration for his own drawings. Michael's work has been featured in numerous national and international galleries, as well as leading contemporary Drawing publications. His work is represented by Art Gazette in London, where is also an Associate Curator.   


Now at Drexel, Michael is excited to serve as Associate Director of Recruitment for the Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design.
