The Center for Book & Paper Arts is full of activity this summer. In addition to a summer exhibition, Marilyn Sward: Speaking in Paper, as well as workshops, lectures and community classes, CBPA is at the center of one of the largest literary events in the Midwest: Printers’ Ball, which is produced in association with Columbia College Chicago and the Poetry Foundation takes place at the Ludington Building July 30 from 6-11pm.
The Interdisciplinary Arts Department is pleased to share some fantastic media coverage for these activities. Enjoy!
The Interdisciplinary Arts Department would like to extend a warm welcome to Jessica Cochran, the new Curator of Exhibitions and Programs at the Center for Book and Paper! Before joining us, Jessica was the Director of Marketing, Programs and Outreach for Art Chicago/NEXT and Director of the O’Connor Art Gallery at Dominican College. In addition to managing exhibitions and programs, Jessica will be responsible for the Center’s marketing, website and Facebook page. Learn more about Jessica from her guest blog for Studio Chicago.
Eden Unluata just graduated from the MA program in Interdisciplinary Arts here at Columbia College (Summer 2010). I had an opportunity to chat with him about how moving from his native Turkey to the US has influenced his art practice and career focus. Now 12 years into making Chicago his home, Eden has used the InterArts MA program to breathe new life into his work. This unique, one-year graduate degree gave him the tools to craft a coherent dialogue surrounding his take on interdisciplinarity: a place where art and design build up on each other.
