Unbound: Contemporary Prints Inspired by Books
Opening Reception and Panel Discussion
Thursday, October 1, 6 pm
Visual Arts Center room 119
Panelists will discuss topics such as the history and mechanics of printmaking, as well as provide closer context for the inspiration behind the exhibition's works. Jennifer D. Anderson will lend her expertise on the process of printmaking. Jen Coleman will discuss Emily Dickinson's work, life, and legacy, as well as her ambivalent relationship with the body as illustrated by Lesley Dill's pieces. Joe Leedom will speak on the text and historical significance of Herman Melville's 1851 novel Moby Dick, the source material for Justin Quinn's selected works. Brent Stevens will present on the visual and literary function of the comic book, the foundation for Joseph Lupo's series of prints. A reception will follow in the first floor lobby of the Richard Wetherill Visual Arts Center, and the museum invites everyone to enjoy the exhibition. Image credit: Joseph Lupo, Iron Man 10.
