Join alumni Greg At Golden (Greg Watson) for a live FB Event this Friday in a discussion about Modern vs. Mineral color pigments!
This is an edited transcript of a talk I presented at the occasion of the Perspectives on The Lasting World Symposium on Saturday, September 23, 2017. The symposium explored the work of Simon Dinnerstein in an exhibit, titled The Lasting World: Simon Dinnerstein and The Fulbright Triptych. This exhibition at the Museum of Art and Archaeology in Columbia, Missouri, runs through December 22, 2017 and then travels to the Arnot Art Museum, Elmira, New York (March 9 - June 30, 2018) and the Nevada Museum of Art, Reno, Nevada (July 21, 2018 - January 7, 2019).

This is a page devoted to painters and fans/friends of painters from Indiana University Bloomington to share ideas and post information on alumni/current student shows, residencies, awards and achievements.
