Performing at UA: Garoian

Performance artist Dr. Charles Garoian, former director of Penn State's School of Visual Arts and an author, will perform "Drawing Blinds" at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the University of Arkansas Fine Arts Center Gallery. Garoian has performed, lectured and presented workshops at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C., a press release from the University said.

In other news from the UA Art Department, gallery director Shannon Dillard Mitchell, who was at UALR before her move to Fayetteville more than a decade ago, is no longer with the University. Mitchell was a champion of the gallery and the assets of the historically significant department (that has, I believe, been ignored in favor of other areas at the U of A, like business; see earlier post here), and was a great help to arts writers needing a little more information on the artists brought to the U of A. I look forward to working with her again and getting her invaluable input for Eye Candy.
