Kendall Professors to be Part of ArtPrize Speakers Series
David Greenwood, Professor of Sculpture & Functional Art and Deborah Rockman, Chair of Drawing and Printmaking, will be presenting on September 29 at 7:00 p.m. as part of the ArtPrize Speaker Series. They will be part of a panel discussion held at ‚??The Hub.‚?Ě
For 2010, ArtPrize organizers will turn the Old Federal building into a physical space to be the ‚??hub‚?Ě of the ArtPrize conversation.
‚??This year we‚??re trying out a central resource center, called The Hub, where voters get support and information,‚?Ě says Rick DeVos, ArtPrize founder. ‚??It will be home to our Speaker Series where ArtPrize and the international art world collide, and it‚??s a practical starting and ending point for the visiting public.‚?Ě
Rockman and Greenwood, along with Brett Colley and Norwood Viviano of Grand Valley State University, were also chosen as four Grand Rapids-based jurors for the 2010 ArtPrize competition to select an international artist for an award.
In addition, Rockman will be presenting on a panel titled ‚??Art-ocracy: Because Voting Matters,‚?Ě to be held at the Catherdral Square Exhibition Center on Friday, September 24 at 6:30 pm. A group of speakers will be asked to discuss their criteria for strong art when voting in ArtPrize.
