UNION INSTITUTE TO HOST INFO SESSION AND ARTIST TALK WITH PORTLAND ARTIST LUCINDA BLISS JUNE 15
MONTPELIER, VT. – Union Institute & University (UI&U), a non-profit private university that offers undergraduate and graduate programs designed for the adult learner, will host a talk with faculty member Lucinda Bliss, followed by a general info session to answer questions about the university’s programs, from 5:30-8 p.m., Monday, June 15, at the Holiday Inn by the Bay, 88 Spring Street, Portland, ME.
Bliss, a Portland-based artist, will discuss her recent work and share images of drawings and artist’s books from the exhibit, Wonderland (March, ’09, Whitney Art Works). She will present her work in the context of collaboration and dialogue and will elaborate on what she finds to be a necessary balance between isolated creative immersion and work that evolves out of dialogue with other artists and thinkers. Work from collaborative projects done with artist Rebecca FitzPatrick and with poet/essayist Alison Hawthorne Deming will be presented.
Union Institute & University’s programs are rooted in learning through dialogue, and Bliss’s presentation will segue into a discussion about the generative and empowering nature of teaching and learning.
