Devon Presents on Tamarind Art at UW-River Falls

The director of the Tamarind Institute of Lithography, Marjorie Devon, will lecture on international and multicultural art on Thuursday, Oct. 30, from 11:30-1 p.m., in B107 Kleinpell Fine Arts Building. It is free and open to the public.

Devon's slide presentation will display art projects created by the Tamarind Institute, in Albuquerque, N.M.. She will discuss the Connections Project that brought together six artists from the former Yugoslavia for a one-month printmaking residency. The goal is to encourage meaningful dialogue that promotes understanding and cooperation between artists from countries divided by politics and ethnic ideology. The project also prompted cultural exchanges between Botswana and New Mexico pueblo artists and collaborations and workshops in India, Chile, Mexico, and the Soviet Union.

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls College of Arts and Sciences, the art department, and art society sponsors this event. For more information, contact the art department at 715/-425-3266.
