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.

If you are in the Providence area, stop by the Rhode Island Convention Center, Exhibit Hall A to see the 2012 RISD Graduate Thesis Show.  You will have to hurry, as the show is only open through June 2 (12-5pm).

I want to highlight one student’s work, Francisco Moreno (MFA Paint 12).  In the past year he has been exploring dazzle in his paintings and installations.  For more images, click here.

Congratulations to all of our grads!
