Artists Now! Guest Lecture Series: Robert Grame
May 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Design affect & currency
People read what we design . People believe in what we design. People see meaning in what we create. Because of these factors, visual communication design seemingly has the power to inform, to immerse, allow for exchange, embed meaning, to persuade, to inspire, to provoke, to validate, and to entertain people. While good design has a tendency to make you think, great design has the ability to connect with the viewer on a visceral level. There is a relationship that is established when you engage the senses, an interaction that takes place… in other words, a memorable, and sometimes deep, transaction between the designer and audience occurs.
The Department of Art & Design proudly presents the 10th season of Artists Now!, a Wednesday evening lecture series designed for a broad audience with an interest in contemporary visual art. It presents a diverse group of artists working across traditional, hybrid and emergent disciplines. Join these nationally and inter- nationally recognized practitioners as they explore and expand the boundaries of creative visual practice today.
All lectures take place on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm in the Arts Center Lecture Hall on the UWM campus. FREE and open to the public!
