The Cincinnati Fotofocus Biennial is coming up in a few weeks, featuring numerous exhibitions, lectures, and photography opportunities from October 8–November 1, with most of the events occurrung during our Fall Break (Oct. 8–12). I attended in 2012 and had a wonderful experience gallery hopping in downtown Cinci.
Super big congratulations to our very own Sheldyn Duff whose work was juried into the regional student show. Her work and others will be on display at the Findlay Street Project Space with an opening reception on Saturday, October 11 from 11 AM–2 PM.

It is very exciting time, particularly for me: I have been missing teaching very much over the last few months. In the next few days, all of us (art faculty) will be spending time with our new orientation groups, eagerly looking ahead to a jam-packed year of events and projects -- please join us anytime!
To all tigers (incoming or returning): Have a great 1st day of class!!!

I took this photograph last Winter at the Gutai exhibition.
|Exterior of the Guggenheim, New York|
When it opened in 1959, the Guggenheim was deemed an eyesore because it was considered a work of (applied) art that could perhaps detract from the real art on view. Like the Barbican's space, the Guggenheim presented installation challenges — how to hang in a space that lacks 90-degree angles. But now, this New York gem is a coveted space for artists to use. Truly, artists of the modern and contemporary eras have risen to the challenge and embraced such overbearing structures and, as a result, have activated spaces in new ways.
Perhaps in a very short while, London's Barbican will become the kind of cultural icon that Solomon R.'s building has become.

Thanks to KLev for sharing this link with me. Artists working with chalk on a chalkboard in a rather stealth manner. Since a number of students have commented on the Chanel poster in my office, I thought this image would be of interest. Enjoy!

Thanks to everyone who came over on Thursday evening, May 1. It was a chilly one this year—meaning next year, it should be balmy! That's been our history: hot one year, cool the next.
It was great to see all of the faculty, families, students, and our special guest star alumni (Maddy and Hannah!!!) as well as special guest star students, Jaylin, Joey, and Travis. I didn't do a great job taking photos this year — I was too busy taking care of the grill. So I only have a few. But, hope you enjoy them.
