AIGA Invited Joe Wright to Present Digitally

The Design students at Truman are continuing to be active in their student organization. Those leading the Truman State University chapter of AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Artists) invited Joe Wright (pictured below) to present on Thursday, March 26th through Zoom at 6 PM for their club. Joe, an alum of the program will be responding to these questions:
Can you talk about UX design and how it affects the design process?
What is the web design process like?
If someone doesn’t like coding, how far can they go?
How was it adjusting to a job out of college?
What jobs have you had, and what are some things you have learned from each?
How is WordPress used in your work?
What advice do you have for college students entering the workforce?
We are pleased to have Joe “visit” us again – it is such a pleasure to see that smile!

A Strong Foundation 2019

Every year, the art department honors our strongest artists in foundational classes (observational drawing, figure drawing, and three-dimensional design) with a show in the Charlyn Gallery.  Then, we choose three particularly successful students to award with scholarships.  This year, congratulations goes to Julia Kidwell, Audrey Allison, and Natalie Gruber!

Alumni Sharing Their Research

Truman State University Art History alumni Jasmine (Fry) Cloud and Ryan Gregg both presented new research at this year’s Sixteenth Century Studies conference in mid-October. The meeting marked the 50th anniversary of that interdisciplinary organization for scholars of the early modern or Renaissance period. Dr. Cloud, now Associate Professor in the Department of Art & Design at the University of Central Missouri gave her paper–“Early Modern Infrastructure: The Routes and Roads of the Roman Forum”–in a session entitled “The Built Environment of Rome”. Dr. Gregg, department chair of the Department of Art, Design, and Art History at Webster University in St. Louis, presented his research in a session on artistic identity; his paper carried the title “Francesco da Sangallo’s Beard: Artistic Identity in Portraits of Cinquecento Sculptors”. Congratulations to both!
