Faculty Exhibition II runs through October 4

Twenty artists and designers will show their works at the MIAD 2008 Faculty Exhibition II through October 4.

  • Faculty Reading
    Wed., Sept 24, 7:00 p.m.
  • Reception
    Thu., Sept 25, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Complementing the exhibition is the Biennial Faculty Reading slated for Wednesday, September 24, 7 p.m., to show the full range of creative work done by faculty from all areas of the college, including Liberal Studies and Humanities.

Participants in the faculty exhibition, also seen biennially, include:

  • Anne Ghory-Goodman, Professor Communication Design – who, following leave in China a year ago, was invited by designers there to participate in an international call for posters that expressed support for the workers involved in the rescue efforts after the Sichuan earthquake.
  • Lynn Tomaszewski, Foundations Associate Professor, whose new body of paintings connects the idea of swarm intelligence – how very simple creatures cope with complexity – to a post-minimalist sensibility.
  • Max Estes ’99, Illustration Faculty, whose painting was recently featured on the cover of the Sept. 4 issue of The New York Times.
  • Larry Chatman, Professor of Photography, who has been photographing people at county fairs in Wisconsin over the past year in an attempt to discover and define the state’s residents.

Additional participating faculty include: Chris Beetow (Illustration), Phil Belair (Communication Design), Joe Boblick (Foundations), Paul Caster (Drawing), Jamal Currie (Time-Based Media), Mark Dziewior (Painting), Bruce Grudzinski (Foundations), Steve Horvath (Foundations), Colin Matthes (Foundations), Tom Noffsinger (Illustration), Will Pergl (Sculpture), Jenny Poetzel (Foundations), Jill Sebastian (Sculpture), Dean Valadez (Painting), Shane Walsh (Drawing), James Weyenberg (Communication Design).

Also running through October 4 is “Project Identity” – the sabbatical work of Foundations Associate Professor James Barany. A yearlong animated collaboration with more than 700 students from 20 schools in 10 states, “Project Identity” is the students’ story of “who and “where” they are – physically, emotionally and collectively. The final animated work will be submitted to national and international film festivals.
