Design Department faculty members show 'Big Work'

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

"Big Work" is on display through Aug. 31 at the gallery on the third floor of the Art & Design Building.


LAWRENCE — Eighteen School of Architecture, Design and Planning faculty members are currently showing their work at this year's Design Department faculty show, titled "Big Work." The show is located in the gallery on the third floor of the Art & Design Building at the University of Kansas.

"In the past our faculty shows haven't been built around a theme," said Tim Hossler, visiting professor, who put the show together. "This year we decided to do something different. We invited faculty to showcase big work—big in scale, big in importance and big in scope."

Photographs of both Mongolia and American suburbia, watercolor illustrations, a sculpture of balloons, a bicycle constructed of bamboo and hand-drawn letter forms are among the pieces of art on display.

"All of this is work that the faculty has done in the last few months," said Andrea Herstowski, associate professor and acting chair of the Design Department. "It lets other faculty see what we are doing, but especially students who don't see our work very often. All of it is related to our research, so one thing feeds into another."

Faculty members showing work include Barry Fitzgerald, Richard Varney, Thomas Huang, Lance Rake, May Tveit, D. Bryon Darby, Luke Jordan, Pok Chi Lau, Travis Shaffer, Tim Hossler, Patrick Dooley, Jeremy Shellhorn, Herstowski, Louis Copt, Greg Thomas, Yoshi Sato, Margie Kuhn and Linda Samson Talleur.

The show runs through Aug. 31. Gallery hours are 1 p.m.-4:30 p.m. Sunday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, 8:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Thursday and 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Friday. The gallery is closed Saturday.
