The opening reception for the UMD Faculty Biennale was, as anticipated, a very rewarding event. If you had taken time to attend many of the student shows over the years, you would quickly recognize how these instructors and professors had influenced the upcoming generation of artists and creative designers. Of course the students are influencing the influencers as well. This is a generation that has grown up with technology. And many of the students have not grown up with art in the schools so that there are some surprising deficiencies in their understanding of basic materials and concepts. But that's a topic for another day.
It's my understanding that "What We Do" will be on display through March 2015. Check it out.
