REM frontman Michael Stipe is now concentrating on art; specifically he's working as a professor in the Steinhardt Department of art at New York University. Stipe, an art student at the University of Georgia before dropping out to tour with REM in its infancy, maintains that he never stopped creating art between then and now. His projects over the years have included photography and design for REM album covers, lighting and stage design of their live shows, and directing music videos.
