Out of Rubble

Visual Arts
April 2 – May 16
Out of Rubble
Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture

The exhibition Out of Rubble reacts to the wake of war — its realities and its representations. The rubble that each war leaves behind shapes today and tomorrow — physically, psychologically and spiritually. Responding to a wide range of violent encounters taking place over four continents, Out of Rubble presents works by seventeen artists and architects from over ten countries who consider its causes and consequences, its finality and future, moving from decimation and disintegration to the possibilities of regeneration and recovery. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, April 2 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. (Click heading for full description.)

Aaron James Draplin: Tall Tales from a Large Man
Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery

The Department of Visual Arts Visiting Artist Program presents a lecture by Aaron James Draplin of the Draplin Design Co. (DDC) of Portland, Oregon. Using scientific proof and state-of-the-art multimedia techniques, “Tall Tales from a Large Man” delivers a sucker punch of a talk that aims to provide bona-fide proof of work, the highs and lows of a ferociously independent existence and a couple of tall tales from his so-called career in the cut-throat world of contemporary graphic design.
