Introducing Christine Nguyen - Spring Semester Visiting Artist!! Help Needed!!!

In January, the Crisp-Ellert Art Museum will host an exhibition of new works by Los Angeles-based artist Christine Nguyen.  With a keen interest in biology and the sciences, Christine works with non-traditional photographic processes such as cyanotype and creates site-specific photo installations. More recently the artist has explored the effects of salt crystallization on flora and fauna that she has foraged in her native LA.  To aid in her installation here at Flagler, we would like to invite students (and professors) in the art department to forage for foliage, garbage, and other found detritus to be subject to her salt experiments.  If interested, please keep the objects to a reasonable size as we will ship them to Los Angeles.  Please feel free to contact Julie Dickover at the museum if you have any questions -  Thanks!

First Friday openings at the Crisp-Ellert Art Museum! November 5th, 5 - 8pm

Please join us for the opening of two new exhibitions at the Crisp-Ellert Art Museum.  Sean Sexton's exhibition entitled "Blood Writing" is on display in the North Gallery.  This artist/rancher/writer is a jack of all trades and in honor of his recently published book of poetry will give a reading at 5:30pm during the opening.  Damond Howard's, "It's Still America's Greatest Problem" is on view in the West Gallery.  Howard is also a Visiting Artist for the fall semester and will be giving a talk in the gallery on Friday at 11am.  Both exhibitions will be on view through November 30.

Ellen Lupton in Orlando

November 11

Join us Nov 11 as Ellen Lupton vents her rage about dumb quotes, bad kerning, free fonts, over-priced toasters, over-stuffed pillows, ill-fitting bras, adult orthodontia, and more, much more. Lupton is a curator, writer, designer, teacher, and world-class complainer who is obsessed with uncovering the design problems all around us. Today, anyone can be a designer-or a publisher, pundit, rock star, or filmmaker. Does that mean we're heading for a more vibrant and interesting world, or one where high quality and good taste are destined for a global meltdown?

Ellen Lupton is curator of contemporary design at Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, Smithsonian Institution in New York City and director of the Graphic Design MFA program at MICA in Baltimore. She is a 2007 recipient of the AIGA Gold Medal. A frequent lecturer around the U.S. and the world, Lupton will speak about design to anyone who will listen.
