PUBLIC LECTURE: Wednesday, Oct 23 from 5-7pm

Free and Open to the Public!
This Wednesday, Oct 23, from 5-7 p.m. in Siegfred Hall’s Mitchell Auditorium, Visiting Artist Winslow Craig comes to the School of Art + Design for a public lecture!
Hailing from the country of Guyana, Craig makes sculptures using wood, bronze, steel, and other media that explore themes of spirituality, justice, gender, nature, and the environment. His works has been described as an internal, spiritual response to the urgent exterior, social questions of today. Many of the artist’s distinctive sculptures incorporate “sawdoue,” a unique medium created by Craig that places an amalgam of sawdust and glue on top of steel.
In addition to numerous exhibitions in Guyana, Craig’s work has been shown in the United States, China, Haiti, Suriname, Trinidad & Tobago, and Venezuela. His sculptures have also seen featured in a CNN World Report documentary on the aftermath of the Gulf War. Craig has won numerous commissions and awards, particularly in Guyana, where he continues to live, work, and teach today.
School of Art + Design students will be able to sign up for private studio visits with Craig during his time on campus! For more info, please contact Melissa Riddle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
