Work of Graphic Designers on Display at OWU's Ross Art Museum
March 24, 2005
DELAWARE, OHIO --
"Dialogue Between Art and Design," an art exhibition displaying a variety
of works blending graphic design and the fine arts, is on display at Ohio Wesleyan
University's Ross Art Museum from now through April
Justin Kronewetter, Director of the Ross Museum and Professor of Fine Arts at OWU, agreed with Knight and added that the exhibition is helpful to current art students, particularly those studying graphic design. "Rarely do we have an exhibition of graphic designers at Ross," Kronewetter said. "And in this case, most of the works are not done on assignment, but rather for the personal satisfaction of the artists as creative individuals."
David Knight will give a guest lecture on March 29 at 7:30 p.m. in Room 312 of the Corns Building. A reception will immediately follow in the Ross Museum. Knight will discuss the works in the exhibition at the Ross Museum, as well as his own professional experience in the world of museums and galleries. "Every year we bring in one of our alumni who have been working as an art professional for at least 15 years to serve as a role model for the current students in the OWU Fine Arts program," Kronewetter said.
"I am extremely happy and honored to be the Distinguished Fine Arts Alumnus this year," Knight commented. "When I was a young student at OWU, I hoped someday to be successful enough in the arts to be named the Distinguished Fine Arts Alumnus."
"Dialogue Between Art and Design," and Knight's lecture as well as the reception are all free and open to the public.
