Subtle Frontiers: Thesis Exhibition Announcement
The exhibition of my graphic design thesis project that caps my MFA career opens this Tuesday, December 10, at the Grunwald Gallery of Art on the campus of Indiana University Bloomington. It will be accompanied by a release of the project website. Subtle Frontiers: Observations in Urban Ecology is my attempt to combine my passions for graphic design and natural history, telling the story of some of my favorite plants and animals that make up my own backyard.
I'll also be giving a gallery talk on Friday the 13th at noon, speaking to the commonalities between the practices of design and natural history as well as my interest in seeing stronger bonds form between the science and design communities. If anyone reading this happens to show up to that talk, I must beg your advance forgiveness if I seem somewhat addled. It has been a wild ride to the finish line.
I'll be updating this post with my project's web address when it launches. And yes, a non-avian dinosaur or two just might have crept in to the project...
