Technology, Entertainment and .... Fine Arts?
TEDxUofM taps the A&D students for some amazing poster artwork.
Teshia Treuhaft is currently chained to her desk documenting the process of surviving senior year at A&D and her obsession with wood veneer.
At TEDxUofM, we have been thinking about ways to incorporate the amazing painters, printmakers and illustrators at A&D into the TED realm for quite a few months now. Arguably one of the best things about UM Art and Design is that each student (whatever their medium) coexists and works side-by-side students that create in completely different ways.
Similarly, in TEDxUofM, it is less about who a specific speaker or attendee is and more about the fact that they share a common passion for ideas, inspiration and innovation. Naturally, they all express themselves in different disciplines, much like the students of A&D all express themselves in different media, but I’ve always felt a common thread through the school of A&D and TED.
This year, instead of having one of our amazing graphic designers (and they are amazing) simply put together a poster; we asked 13 amazing artists and designers from the school of A&D (many of whom may identify as ‘fine artists’ but I don’t like to label) to come up with what they wanted to see on a poster. They could work in any medium, any size and create whatever they wanted with a Red, Black and White palette. Here is a snap shot of the results – check them out all around Ann Arbor in the next few weeks!
And for gosh sakes – register for this amazing event, the application is open now!!!
Also - If you haven't had your poster fill, there is a neat little Egress show over in Slusser Lounge
