Special Collections is pleased to announce a new exhibit, mounted by Professor Kathryn Bell, highlighting work from her Spring 2009 GD I students. The exhibit, Pictorial to Typographical Form, is on display in Special Collections, Library Room 104. Students whose work is featured include: Kelley Kepley, Erica Shin, Maria McAllister, Sarah Fillmore, Brenna Miller, Jessica Gonzalez, David Lee, Nahyung Han, Kim Thompson, Phillip Jacoby, and Kemron Senhouse.
Students viewed and selected photographs from the Special Collections Photography Collections and Bafford Photography Book Collection to study the graphic and geometric forms "hidden" in the images. They then translated these forms into typographic compostions and forms. The students studied both organic and architectural subjects, choosing work by several artists, including Robert Mapplethorpe, David Plowden, and Lucien Clergue.
All are invited to view the Pictorial to Typographical Form exhibit Monday through Friday from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm, and Thursday 1:00 pm - 8:00 pm. We are located on the first floor of the Library, through the main gallery, in Special Collections (Rm 104).
Special thanks to Professor Bell for creating the exhibit, hanging the pieces, and contributing supplies.
