Come check out an exhibit of works by Lynd Ward in the Darling Library Rotunda, West Campus. Working closely with Theatre Professor Christopher Keene, Gallery Design students Karissa Hartman, Alix Fortner and Allison Holland curated a commemorative exhibit for Christian artist Lynd Ward (1905-1985), the artist best known for first bringing the graphic novel to America. His six graphic novels were all comprised of woodcut prints and no words.
The exhibit is part of a collaborative project between the Art & Design and Theatre Departments and will be up until April 13th. It goes along with the Theatre Dept's production of "Faustus", running April 3-13. The play features the artwork of Lynd Ward.
Art History Professor Lyrica Taylor will also be giving a lecture on Lynd Ward, April 10 at 5:00pm in the Blackbox Theater.
