Bedazzle at University of Northern Iowa

Posted in News, Resources with tags , , , , , , , on October 26, 2012 by ccovert

I will be giving a talk on Halloween at the University of Northern Iowa.  It is free and open to the public, so if you are in the neighborhood stop by.  There is an exhibition of student posters for the event currently up as well as an exhibit on camouflage.  For more information see: http://www.uni.edu/artdept/gallery/Calendar.html

I was invited to talk by Roy Behrens, Professor of Art at UNI, RISD Alum, and camouflage scholar.   I highly recommend his new book Ship Shape: A Dazzle Camouflage Sourcebook.

Maurice L  Freedman, RISD Alumnus, was the district camoufleur in Florida during World War I.  After the war he attended RISD and donated the dazzle plans and photos.  He was born in New York in 1898 and died in Massachusetts in 1983.  We don’t know much about Maurice.  Hoping someone knows more.
