Susanna Crum Artist Talk
Join us for the Kent Blossom Art Lecture Series from May 30 - June 6, 2018. Visiting artists who are a part of the Kent Blossom Art Intensives will be giving presentations on their work. Free and open to the public.
On Thursday, May 31, Susanna Crum, visiting artist in printmaking, will be giving a talk on her work at 6:00 p.m. in room 165 at the Center for the Visual Arts (325 Terrace Drive).
As a printmaker and interdisciplinary artist, Susanna Crum conducts research-based projects that investigate maps, printed ephemera, and viewing devices as social artifacts at the intersection of past, present, and future. With processes like cyanotype, lithography, woodcut, and screenprint, Susanna combines digital and analog technologies, and emphasizes print media’s roles in maintaining relationships - and erasures - between people and place. Whether she is working with printmaking processes or architectural video projection, Susanna's multilayered images merge community-based research with archival materials like letters, maps, newspapers, and oral histories, and propose an interpretation of place in which past and present are concurrent and vital.
Susanna received her MFA and MA in Printmaking with minors in Sculpture and Intermedia from the University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA, and her BFA from the College of Architecture, Art and Planning at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY.
