Last Extra Credit Opportunity: Kligman Art Lecture and Exhibit

Reminder: For extra credit, you need to attend the event, and write a short (1-2 page) summary and reaction to it. All extra credits must be handed in by Friday, May 4th. You might want to look through the list of extra credit opportunities and see if you did something credit-worthy without realizing it.

May 3 @ 4:00 pm Room 409 Russ Hall
Reception to follow at 5:00 pm in Porter Hall

The Kligmans will deliver a public lecture May 3 at 4:00 pm in room 409 Russ Hall followed by a reception in Porter Hall at 5:00 pm. In 2009, Misha earned a MFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of Kansas at Lawrence, KS. In 2001, Amy earned a BFA from the Ringling College of Art and Design of Sarasota, FL. The Kligmans were the recipients of the Juror’s Selection first-place exhibition award for their entries in Visual Territory, the PSU Art Department’s biannual national juried exhibition. The exhibition gathered artists from around the U.S. to investigate “the intimate territories of personal experience and the global landscape of place and the environment”.

About his recent body of work, Misha writes that his work reflects his “continuous struggle to understand the insistent nature of nostalgic longing tinted by the history of exile and the knowledge of genocide.” History is a major influence for Misha and his work aims to clarify and reflect his beliefs. Amy writes, “While creating this body of work, I have been thinking of a kind of place… I don’t think of this place as a location on a map, but more a place in one’s head where life reveals itself… Its a place where you start to put things together, where things seem clear, though not always logical.” Her focus on this “thinking place” is evident in her colorful and engaging work.
